When copying data from a table on IE, I just have to paste (ctrl-v), and the data is pasted into appropriate separate cells.
In Firefox, I have to "paste special" and click "text" to separate the fields. Otherwise, all the data is pasted into a single cell or in the case of Word, one paragraph.
Is there a setting that can be designated to allow paste as in IE or as within Word or Excel?
The Dafizilla Table2Clipboard extension should help with this.
