Problem pasting into Firefox from another program

Kuphostiwe

I have a password manager called Keepass2, I've used this under Windows for more than four years. Unfortunately it’s not working correctly for me in Linux Mint. I have a Linux version of the program installed.

When trying to paste a login into a website - either by dragging & dropping it, (as I can do in the Windows version every time) or copying & pasting – all the logins are in English, but in Mint, 25% of the time they get transposed into Chinese characters in the login field (sometimes the password too, I know that if the login's correct, but it fails to be authenticated).

I have Mint Cinnamon 18.1, using Firefox 50.1.0 My locale, language, region is set to EN-GB, although I’m in Thailand (but definitely not China!) It was suggested checking Firefox - the Text Encoding to ensure sure Auto-Detect was off, which it was anyway. The only languages installed in Firefox are “en-gb” and “en”, in that order

The Mint forum have made various other suggestions, including installing a different browser. I went for a Linux browser Qupzilla.

The results: Qupzilla - twenty times I dragged & dropped into the Gmail login. Worked every time. Then without closing that browser, I did the same with my existing Firefox v50.1.0. That failed on the fourth attempt with drag & drop, pasted Chinese characters again. Second try: Qupzilla twenty times OK, Firefox failed on attempt number six.

Then I when I had Chinese characters pasted into Firefox from KeePass, I dragged them from Firefox into Libre Office Writer. The result was still Chinese. The thing that made me smile is that I can even tell you font LO selected: "WenQuanYi Micro Hei" Ha ha!

Have you come across this issue before? Any ideas?

No, I haven't heard of that before. Have you done a search of this forum? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/search/advanced

Have you tried doing that 'test' to a simple text editor program?

Have you asked about that at Keepass Help? https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329221/

As far as that possibly being a Bug in Firefox, the first question I would have is - is Mint building their version of Firefox from source code?

Or are they using the Mozilla build now-a-days? Some Linux distros have switched away from using their own builds recently. Must have worked out the objections that Mozilla had with the modifications those distros wanted to make to Firefox.

Might be worth looking at Bugzilla for a filed Bug report, if you are using a build that was made by Mozilla and used by Mint without modifications. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/
