Description Stoian Dan 2018-06-10 09:46:09 UTC
The clipboard does not work on "firefox on wayland".

1. Open "Firefox on Wayland"

2. Copy or cut some content 

3. Try to paste it outside "firefox on wayland" on a application like gedit.

Expected output:
Have the paste

Actual output:
The clipboard is empty

Note that the reverse (from XWayland apps to firefox on wayland) works!

I can confirm this one. Happens for both page content and the address bar.
