I can assure you that the reported problem, ie, Control-C not

displaying a web page. Control-C click on the URL bar. Open a Writer
window. Paste (Control-V). This ALWAYS works. Select some text in
the Firefox page. Control-C click. Go to the Writer page. Paste.
About 90% of the time the result is the previously copied URL.
However, if in the Firefox page, you click on Edit, and then Copy,
and then paste in the Writer Document, it is correct.

I have performed this experiment (and similar ones) enough times to
definitely rule out a keyboard problem on my machine. There is
something strange in the interaction between Firefox and Writer. I
have tried the same experiment with the Opera browser and do not see
Again, new evidence. I don't have any clever answers.
And for the record, I have a PhD in Electrical Engineering ...
I imagine that there are plenty of people with PhDs who are not
