Pasting from Firefox into Outlook?

Weird thing....
I'm on a website using Firefox. 1.5.0.8
I copy some text.
I go to Outlook to paste it in.
It pastes it in, as an HTML attachment.
I can't use 'paste special' to paste as text, and it seems to work with IE 6.0.
anyone else have this problem?

You must be copying more than just text, since it works fine for me. Maybe what you're copying uses tables?

I copied the word ''must'' from your post, and the word 'DrudgeReport' from DrudgeReport, and got the same result. I googled a little bit, and there have been Outlook/Firefox copy/paste problems, but I didn't see any posts about this specific problem.

Although I didn't use Outlook anymore, sometimes I get this problem when using my Thunderbird. The way I do it, I copy the HTML code from the source and insert the code via the insert HTML on Thunderbird. A lot of hassle, so an easier solution would be appreciated.
