Thanks, I've been hunting this one for a long time. It's perhaps https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1485916
How reliably you can reproduce that? Can you check if there's a copy or paste problem? You can check actual clipboard content by some clipboard manager like gpaste or clipit. Focus change may help or some delay after paste (https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/issues/66)
The possible workaround for this issue is to use Drag&Drop.
Very, very weird. I've tried to reproduce it again and it was simply working. I'll try it once again after fresh boot. I'll send update tomorrow.
Okay, thanks. We already track it as Bug 1585393 co closing as a dupe.
