    Out of the blue Mozilla stopped letting me use the mouse to copy/paste. I have to use the keyboard, control C/V. Any ideas?

    The same thing happens to me occasionally when either memory or cache gets clogged up, I guess. Rebooting normally fixes the problem.

    My wife ran into something similar and claims it would happen if she used Crap Cleaner to purge her temp files/cache/cookies, etc, and then kept using her laptop without rebooting.

    Either way, try running either Crap Cleaner or ATF to clean things out and then reboot and see what happens.

    Never had that problem.

    I most always use the keyboard for copy/paste anyway...

    It's quicker...
