When I try to copy and paste anything from google docs to another document (MS word) or from a Word document or screen shoot in to google docs, this message pops up: "Your browser does not allow access to your computer's clipboard"

How can I fix this??

Use this extension to set the necessary permissions - Allow Clipboard Helper:

I have the same problem with GoogleDocs referencing access to the clipboard. I know this question is 2 months old... but unfortunately, that addon did nothing to help.

I have the same problem.

Tried the plugin, didn't work, tried to edit user.js manually, didn't work (necessary entries have been there already from the plugin).

I am on Ubuntu, FF8, in case that matters.

Thx, T
