Unlocking Clipboard for Fire Fox.

Hello Experts.

I need to unlock clipboard for specific domain to be able to get clipboard contents.
All works fine for protocol file://
(I don't care when have to confirm scaring message from FF.)

When setting user.js properly as explained in this test case:

button gives an error.

What has to be done to unlock a clipboard?
Can you reproduce your solution in your own local host?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Seems like a great article and introduction into a problem.

I don't have time to test all of this and in mean time simply use a textarea tag as a tray where user pastes clipboard and wait 10ms when al data is pasted.

Only a hope that 10ms is enough.
