It would help if you explained how you are copying and pasting, for example:
Edit->Copy and Edit->Paste
Selection and middle mouse button click
Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V
Have you tried the various copy and paste methods in more than just Firefox and OOo Writer (not Word!) applications such as a simple text editor, GUI dialog boxes, command prompt? By varying the methods and applications to find out which of them does and doesn't work, we can get a better idea of what might be broken and hence how to fix it.
