Issue with Chrome on Linux - Pasting from Zotero


This is very specific, and definitely a chrome/linux issue, but I am hoping somebody might have some insights. Chrome on Linux has had some problems over the last few months, but this one is a new one. I really don't know if this is the Chrome/Linux issue (more likely?) or a Zotero/Linux issue.

In Zotero, when I copy a bibliography to the clipboard, and then paste into Chrome/Linux, the pasted text starts with

��<�div class...

I.e., there are stray characters and the text is not interpreted as html, but passed as plain text.

When I paste from Zotero to Firefox/Linux, all is well. When I copy first to Firefox/Linux, then copy again and paste to CHrome, all is well also.

Any ideas?

  • There's a similar issue with notes. It's possible to paste html text to notes but when copying from a note to Chrome, the text is corrupted in the same way as above.
  • No ideas on this anyone?
