Fixed [FF] Can't paste on the rich text editor (random)

    Sometimes I can't paste on the rich text editor. Happened to me recently while creating this thread: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/the-2010-suggestions.71994/

    I was going to each suggestion thread and copying and pasting the information and then it suddenly refused to continue pasting the information (it was still on the clipboard, I tested with Notepad).

    Steps to reproduce: just start (manually, from scratch) a new thread with the exactly same contents of this: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/the-2010-suggestions.71994/

    For each suggestion you need to go the thread and copy paste both two lines. When pasting the third or fourth suggestion information it will not work.

    The example test case is not available anymore (courtesy of Brogan) but hope @Mike can now reproduce it.

    I tried the steps, and I was able to paste the URL.

    However, I have come across this "can't paste" bug a couple of times, seemingly happening totally randomly. (Mac Firefox 28.0, XF 1.3.0 and 1.3.1).

    The "fix" for me has always been, same as your suggestion, switching to BB Code editor and pasting the content there. Also, after coming back from the BB Code Editor to the Rich mode, I could again paste text.

    Yes it appears to be random. I just wanted to post the steps so Mike would know exactly what I did, hopefully the information will help him isolate the problem.

    I'm not sure I reproduced this specifically, but I did reproduce something that may be related. I've just rolled the change out here, so please let me know if you run into this again.

    The pasting issue for me appears to have been resolved, Mike.
