Highlight/Copy/Paste works intermittently for me in Firefox.

For example, and this happens frequently, when I highlight a word or sentence, paragraph, etc. on a web page then click Copy, either from the right-click context menu or the Toolbar/Edit/Copy menu, all seems well. So far so good.

However, when I try to Paste that item into a text file or a Word or Wordpad document I often can't because the 'Paste' menu item is grayed out. I usually have to repeat the entire process over and over before it finally works.

I have ruled out Windows XP as the cause of the problem because it only occurs when the source of the Highlight/Copy is Firefox.

Is anyone else having this problem? It's been bugging me for months. Thanks in advance.

It's quite an annoying bug.
