Reproducible with Firefox on any platform.

This sounds like Capturing a Paste Event in Firefox: The paste event has been supported in major browsers for some time now, but interestingly Firefox doesn’t trigger the event unless the user’s cursor is currently focussed in an editable region.

Unfortunately, the Firefox bug is meant to have been fixed already and sprinkling contenteditable=true in every div doesn't make any difference. Neither does listening for clipboard events on all contenteditable elements as suggested here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/19269040/428751.
