Isisombululo esikhethiwe

I found myself the procedure :

1) remove all old firefox versions : sudo apt purge firefox* sudo apt autoremove --purge dpkg -l | grep '^rc' | awk '{print $2}' | sudo xargs dpkg --purge dpkg -l | grep '^rc' | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo apt-get purge


2) install snap and firefox with snap (other repository versions and Software Manager integrzted version are bullshit with 21.2 (Victoria) : copy/ paste error) (used firefox version 29 August 2023 version 117.0 (64-bit)) sudo apt install snapd sudo snap install firefox

Hope this will help others

Where are the files you try to paste store (your home directory or elsewhere) ? Are you possibly using the Snap Firefox version as that version has restrictions about accessing files ?

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.

Also make sure you have updated the WhatsApp web app as it may take opening a new WhatsApp web window to get the update notification. WhatsApp put out an update on Monday to fix the paste issue.

I have tried simple things and compare with other browsers problem is coming from Firefox. This action is used every time in the day everyday and it should be corrected! I have seen a lot of forum talking about that and no real solution for years now...
