Out of nowhere, I suddenly could not copy & paste a paragraph from my MS-WORD file to either google drive doc or web-based outlook (through Firefox).
Instead of displaying the paragraph, the pasted message now becomes as follows
Version:1.0 StartHTML:0000000160 EndHTML:0000022360 StartFragment:0000022320 EndFragment:0000022320 SourceURL:file:///C:\Users\Brenden\Desktop\steve.docx
Through Chrome, web-based outlook still shows the same message but now I can copy & paste to google drive.
Any idea what happened? Why is Firefox acting up ? If bleeping computer is not the right place for the question, please help direct me to the right forum.
google searches found something that worries me. Not sure if the symptom described above warrants the worry. I am sharing additional below and seeking input -
(1) it appears that there are virus/malware that can target clipboard
(2)my MS-WORD clipboard Options were ticked for "show office clipboard icon on taskbar" and "show status near taskbar when copying"
(3) perhaps as a result of (2), on Firefox everything with "Ctrl + C" got pasted on the MS-WORD clipboard
