As the title states. At least half the time when you try right-click and use the "Copy" function, the option is greyed out. If you try to Ctrl+Shift+C, it opens dev tools! This happens on multiple systems that I have that are based on Debian/Ubuntu. So basically, copy functionality is broken for Firefox Linux users...

I notice that you posted with a Snap Firefox version that keeps its profile in a different location and also has different permissions for local file access.

You can try Firefox from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution to see if it behaves differently.

The default shortcut for copy is Ctrl+C. If Ctrl+C doesn't work either, perhaps there is something unusual about the selected text.

(I created an add-on to treat Ctrl+Shift+C like Ctrl+C, in case it's needed: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ctrl-shift-c-should-copy/ )
