Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Here is how I produced this:
I hv google chrome and firefox both installed.

If I hv to open a website I opened in firefox,again in chrome, I copy the address from the firefox navigation bar and CLOSE it. Then I open chrome and try to paste the address in it's navigation bar, here u are wit problem, there is no option to paste anything(It's greyed out).
It happens only when the app(firefox) is closed before we paste tht content to the other browser.

This can be seen the otherway also. ie if we copy from chrome and try to paste in firefox (of course after closing the chrome).

This was present in Karmic and is now present in lucid also.
