When I cut and paste text into the chat edit window in the discord website app, the text I am pasting appears twice. This started happening within the last month. I am using Firefox 78.0.1. This does not happen in chromium, for example, nor in pasting info to other applications. I am running the latest Linux Mint OS as well.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

I wonder if Firefox does that if the keyboard commands for Cut & Paste are used?

I don't use Discourse, and have had similar happen on other websites most notably YouTube comments recently and that is with KBD commands and the Context Menu (right-click menu) are no better. When I 'edit' a posting @YT I can't rearrange what I had posted, I have to to is outside of Firefox in a text program and then replace the entire original posting to reorder what I had initially posted.

iirc, that started with me before a month ago, more like 2 or 3 months ago @YT

And with Reddit fora, I have gotten that duplication with both KBD and Context Menu; and about the same time span, but mentally attributed that to their redesigned User Interface. Using the '/old/ UI which is still an option, I don't have that issue, or nearly as bad for sure.

And I am on Win7 32-bit .....

Yes, the problem still exists in safe mode.

This problem exists ONLY in firefox on the web page edit box when in a channel on discord. It doesn't matter whether in safe mode or not. Note I am on Linux Mint, not Windows. Cutting and pasting in a terminal window has no problems. Cutting and pasting in a chromium browser has no problems. There is something funky between discord and firefox.

Hi Stephen:

Copy and Paste works fine in discord with me on Windows 10, Firefox 78.0.1. I don't have a Linux machine to test on.

How did you install Firefox on Linux? Did you use the Firefox from or did you use Mint's package manager?

Linux Mint package manager apt / install iso. I haven't tried re-installing.

Okay. Deleted installed firefox. Reinstalled with apt. Also then downloaded tar.bz2 file from and unloaded it over the existing /usr/lib/firefox. Same result. Still pasting twice upon a single right mouse click. Very odd and annoying.
