The Control-C copy failure is beginning to bother me. After I
downloaded the latest version of Firefox I say no failures for a full
day. This morning the failure began again. So I decided to run some
tests. Here are the results:

Please remind us again exactly what operating system and program
versions you are using, and which desktop, if the question makes sense.

Here is my test plan

Launch: Firefox, Opera, Gvim, Notepad, Writer

Bring up a page in Firefox and Opera.

Insert some text in Gvim and Notepad

Select an item in Firefox, Opera, Gvim or Notepad

Control-C click on selected item in source

Go to target (Gvim, Notepad, or Writer) and click Control-V

Record whether the selected item is pasted (OK) or some previous item

For browsers, the selected item will be either from the URL line or
the body text.

In the following list:  source   target   success or failure

Firefox page writer OK

Firefox URL writer OK

Firefox page writer OK

Opera page writer Fail

Opera URL writer OK

Opera page writer Fail

Gvim writer OK

Notepad writer OK

Opera page Gvim Fail

Opera URL Gvim OK

Opera URL notepad OK

Opera page notepad Fail

relaunch Firefox and Opera

Firefox page notepad OK

Firefox URL notepad OK

Firefox page writer OK

Firefox URL writer OK

Firefox page writer OK

Firefox URL notepad OK

Firefox page notepad OK

no Fails after about 30 additional random trials

I don't know what to make of this.
