Bug Description

I'm here to report that Cut/Copy/Pase functions a completely broken in Midori 0.2.9.
Previously I thought that it is just shortcut customazing feature what is broken (see my bug 707040), but it turned out that I cannot copy/paste even using a mouse (right-clicking and choosing "Copy" or "Pase" in the context menu).
Using a web-browser without working Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V functions is nearly impossible (at least it is very very inconvenient).

Please, do something to fix this. :'(

works here, fedora 11 on olpc, gnome, midori 0.2.9
maybe related to it, though: printing (into pdf, no other printer/driver installd) gives me a screenshot instead of the whole page. that was on a site with download-disabled fotos. next i tried to print a forum thread. only the first site was printed. link-copying or text copying works per rightclick ctrl+c etc. copy paste of pics doesnt work, disbled downloads or not, maybe because abiword doesnt take it.
printing worked in midori 0.2.8, if i changed other things isnt clear to me. cups2pdf i didnt change, thats sure.
ps installing isnt possible because authors file isnt recognized by the installer (title changes from AUTHORS to authors in fedora)
im not sure if some of that is related to midori-bugs.

I have to add some information on this problem.
The Copy/Cut functions work in the address field and search fiels in the toolbar. But they do not work in the web-page area. I cannot copy any text from the web page.
When I try to "Cut" the text, it vanishes from the place it had been, but never gets into the clipboard (or copy/paste buffer), so I cannot paste it anywhere.

This is strange, since like I said, Copy/Cut works fine for the search and address fields, and this is the same appliction. I'm not sure, but could it be a Webkit-related bug or not?

I've encountered this bug since 0.2.6. The problem is just as Michael Moroni describes it, copy/paste in the web page area doesn't work, but location bar is fine.

This is a WebKitGTK+ bug, I filed .

To mitigate the pain I implemented a workaround in Midori.
