Description Martin Stransky 2018-10-05 08:57:09 UTC
Description of problem:
When text is marked as selected on firefox-wayland, it fails to propagate to clipboard. Unable to reproduce with latest trunk.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select text by mouse
2. try to copy to other window/application

The primary seems to somehow interfere with selection clipboard, when something is put to primary and then switched back to firefox, Firefox overwrite primary with selection context.

Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2018-10-09 20:20:57 UTC
Should be fixed now by firefox-62.0.3-2.fc29.
