You can use the keyboard if the buttons on the web page aren't working.

  • Copy: Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Insert
  • Paste: Ctrl+V or Shift+Insert
  • Cut: Ctrl+X or Shift+Delete

Hi joanne1948, are you trying to use buttons supplied by the site? Due to security restrictions, those buttons often do not work. Instead, try using the standard keys for your operating system. For Windows, see core-el's post above: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/949784#answer-406344
