Package: vim
Version: 1:6.3-013+2
Severity: minor

When I yank text from vim, and go over to Mozilla and try paste the
selection it doesn't quite work.

For example Edit->paste in mozilla is not highlighted.

Shift+Insert does not work.

However middle does work. But I want to avoid using the mouse.

Is this a vim or Mozilla bug?
Apologies in advance if this is not a vim bug...

Thanks for clarifying, I'm closing this bugreport.
