Windows XP home SP3 on a PC

All of a sudden, today, I am unable to copy and paste when I am online.
I checked and when I am using a document, I am able to copy and paste and I was able to copy from the document to a search box online.

It is happening in Firefox. I am able to copy and paste in IE.

I checked in my control panel and it is checked to allow it.

My AVG scan didn't show anything.

Please tell me how to fix this.

Thanks!

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same issue?

Before I saw your response I just closed Firefox and re-opened it and I was able to copy and paste. I'm not sure why it happened but I will remember your fix for the next time.
Thanks!
