Copying text from Firefox Browser

Goes wacky when I paste

If I select a block of text from a site I'm viewing in Firefox, when I paste that text into another application, it displays in some nutty font style - definitely not what I'm viewing in the browser. This leads to a lot of reformating, which is a pain. Any ideas on how to get around this?

I think this has to do with the program that you are pasting the text into... I would paste it into a text editor like Notepad and then copy from Notepad and paste into your desired program... There are other options, but this seems like the simplest

You want to grab
copy plain text extension, that solves the problems.
