You're going to have to specify what you mean by "copying to Mozilla" 
means.  Do you mean pasting into a cgi-bin based form?  If so, then 
that's likely where your problem lies.  I can confirm that pasting 13K

the standard alphanumeric characters.  As soon as quotes and 
single-quotes were used then the pasting no longer worked.  Similarly
