Firefox does not keep the format of copied text?

I do a lot of copying information from websites into word, and in doing this there's a lot of formatting like font style and color codes and color fades that need to be kept when I'm copying them into word. On my desktop computer this isn't a problem at all, but on my labtop here Firefox does not keep the formatting of the text and copies it only as plain text into Word 2007. Chrome keeps the formatting, but unfortunately chrome also keeps the background color of the website and I don't need that and can't figure out how to make it go away.

I have tried using the paste special, but the only options it has are plain text and unicode plain text.

Everything I have read blames Skype Click-to-Call add-on, so I will state that it is not currently and never has been installed on this machine.

Yeah, I always wondered that.
