1 I can't explain why the following cut 'n paste problem happens when I select
2 some symbols within text in Firefox and then try to insert by middle-click in
3 LibreOffice Calc.
5 If I select the symbols for £ (GBP), or € (Euro) and middle click upon a cell
6 in LOCalc, a window pops up asking "Select the Language to Use for Import". I
7 leave it to "Automatic" which is the default setting and the symbol plus any
8 text is pasted with the same format as the webpage. The symbols are then
9 displayed correctly in LOCalc.
11 However, if I enter a cell by double clicking on it, or by clicking in the
12 edit bar, then middle click to enter the selection, both £ and € symbols are
13 entered in some strange code - e.g. \u20ac
15 Other browsers do not exhibit this behaviour. Firefox has been installed with
16 these flags:
