When I copy something in Mozilla Browser, if I close the browser, I cannot paste it in another place (the browser forget if it is closed). This is not heppening in Internet Explorer.

I have an example, to be clear enough:

I open Mozilla, I enter www.imdb.com, I look for a movie. I find a page that I want to send to a friend of mine. I select from browser bookmark the address, right click on it and select copy. I CLOSE THE BROWSER. When I want to paste that information on any other place (in a document, in chat, in messenger etc.) there is nothing to paste. The browser forgets the information copied if it is closed. If it's not closed, he doesn't forget.

This is happening on any PC, desktop, laptop and it doesn't matter if it is on vista, windows xp etc.

This problem doesn't exist on Internet Explorer. Can you tell me if I have a way to change this problem ? To choose whether i want to be that way or not.

Tnank you !

You need to paste the content before closing Firefox. Firefox may clear the content of the clipboard on exit.

I know this, but i was wondering if there is a way, a setting which will make Mozilla to not forget the inofromation copied after it is closed.

Internet Explorer doesn't clear the information copied on clipboard after it is closed. And you don't have to make a setting for this. He just remember it.

Thank you !

Thank you very much for solving the problem !

I verified on many computers and now it's ok. Mozilla remembers the information copied on clipboard, even after the browser it is closed.

Thank you again ! Happy New Year !
