Copy & Paste does not work in Firefox on Google Docs

Firefox blocks certain clipboard events by default. This breaks some Google Docs functionality. To reenable it, go to about:config and set dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled to true

Please be aware that this is a global setting and allows all websites access to your clipboard, which is a potential privacy/security risk.

  1. Hello,

    Thanks for the tip. Is there no way to make this exclusive to Google Docs. I'm concerned about the risks.
