this is a common browser anomoly. i think the browser hijacks the copy buffer. and i suspect the reason is because it is not your ordinary text box. this is especially true of the address bar.

try this instead. select, menu item copy, click into box, menu item paste. i bet that works.

also i suspect within the browser code is a reporting block and after having open and using for long time, it gets jammed up. i also bet if you close-reopen that problem does not happen for a while.
