Ordered a ssd drive finally. so done a wipe down and installed as normal. everything work, can copy paste in every app except firefox. have googled and in the past there was an issue but no one is currently having this problem. it was a straight install nothing else modded or changed yet. right click copy then paste does nothing, same as keyboard shortcuts.

firefox version 53.0.2-1

Any ideas

  • Are any of the working applications also GTK3? What version of GTK3 is installed? – Fox May 10 '17 at 16:11
  • gtk 3.22.13-1 is installed – David May 10 '17 at 16:14
  • just seems odd. i just wiped an uptodate antergos with ff. now there is no copy paste. i did do another reformat but same issue – David May 10 '17 at 16:18
  • (gtk3-demo → Text View → Hypertext → Run) attempt copy-paste in the resulting window. Does it work there? – Fox May 10 '17 at 16:41
  • Also, which kind of copy-paste is broken? Menu-entry/keyboard-shortcut clipboard copy-paste, or the middle click selection paste? Or both? – Fox May 10 '17 at 17:01

This seems to be a bug introduced by the gtk3-3.22.13-1 package (or possibly one of the packages updated alongside it). Here's the bug report.

EDIT: Fixed by upgrading to gtk3-3.22.14-1
