As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

I am using 79.0 (64-bit) now, but since many versions back, Chinese input stops working in Firefox and I have never got around to deal with it. On Windows 10, I have other languages keyboard such as Russian/Japanese/Chinese/French etc. Depending on the need, I switch to other keyboard to enter the language in various places such as search box, form on a page etc. However, since many versions back (I can not remember when), Chinese language (pinyin) input stops working. If I don't get any tips on resolve this, I will enter a bug. Yes, I already tried the safe mode.

When I launch Firefox, the first click is ignored. So I must click it once again, it's a little frustrating...

I'm having this problem with Twitter, Gmail, and Google news, and I can open it in Facebook, StackOverFlow, and Tumblr with no problems.

This does not occur when opening in a private window or in windows opened using Ctrl-N. I checked in the "network" tab of the development tools and the transfer volume says "blocked".

Disabling Windows Security doesn't effect anything.(I don't install other security tools) What is the problem?

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread
