Cut and pasting from firefox to other apps (oocalc in my case) does not work,

It seems to work for me.  Are you still seeing this behavior?  What exact steps
do you do?

It still does not work

I've narrowed it to pasting to the calc big entry field/bar
If you try to paste aiming directly at a cell it works (both with middle-click
and ctrl C / ctrl v)

Ah, okay. Thanks.
