#1458 new defect

Clipboard is unreliable with thunderbird editor area

Reported by: psycho_zs Owned by: psycho_zs
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0
Component: clipboard Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Running thunderbird on server, copying or pasting text from/into thunderbird's editor area not working most of the time.

In the test I've copied text from leafpad on the client to leafpad on server (successful), then another text from leafpad on the client to thunderbird on server (previous data is pasted). Then again (unsuccessful), then pasted to leafpad on server (successful), then pasted to thunderbird (after pasted to leafpad, successful).

So after using clipboard for the first time, I'm only being able to paste to thunderbird after I paste to something else.

I cannot reproduce.
The clipboard works for me everytime, in both directions.
I've tried on Fedora 25 and Debian Stretch.

Maybe something is interfering with the clipboard on your client system? See wiki/Clipboard.

I cannot use the sample log files provided as I have no way of knowing which part of the log file relate to what: the communication is done via the X11 server's "selections", so all the events look pretty much the same.
