The problem is that Copy saves the file type of the file you are
copying from to the clipboard, and Paste presents that file type to
the application you are pasting into. NetSurf doesn't accept plain
text pasted from a file that isn't type Text (fff). This restriction
seems to be as unnecessary as it is frustrating.
As said above, here there is _no_ problem in pasting the URL from the
clipboard (RO 6.20, NS 2107, SE 4.69). Which application are you using
to view the NS HTML source?
