Anyway, I seem to have found the solution - sync clipboards using ClipIt (http://clipit.rspwn.com/) or some other clipboard manager
My case - hopefully FF devs find this useful: 1. Paste works - I paste screenshots, text copied from terminal, and other stuff 2. Copy text from FF page, or hitting a copy button on a page, works only partially - I can paste in other GUI apps but not in terminal
The snippet does appear in ClipIt. When I select it, it becomes available to paste in terminal
3. Copy text from FF address box works - I can paste anywhere
The recommended solution from FF support is to "reset", which means "factory reset" - this doesn't solve the problem and kills all yous addins, bookmartks, settings, etc. FF support stop suggesting stupid solutions!
I have also played with the settings - there was something there wrt copy/paste - it worked for a few hours
My guess is that Firefox is doing something wrong when placing things in the clipboard. Placing in the wrong clipboard or maybe you should place it in multiple clipboards and please make it configurable in case you screw it.
