Pasting text from Mac apps into rich text controls pastes plain text

Name:    Bob
Product: Firefox
Summary: Pasting text from Mac apps into rich text controls pastes plain text

Using: Mac OS X 10.6 and Firefox 3.5 and 3.6 beta 1

Steps to reproduce:
* Write text in Text Edit, Yojimbo, etc using rich text (e.g. font
sizes, bold, italics)
* Open Gmail in Firefox and compose an email
* Copy and paste the text you created from the other Mac app into Firefox

Observed: text is pasted in as plain text
Expected: converts the rich text to appropriate rich text in the
control, like Safari does

This is a huge pain when e.g. writing release notes in Yojimbo and then
pasting them into Firefox on Mac.  I actually launch Safari just for
those times.

pasting formatted text into a plain text post
I use OE 6. Everything posts-news related is set to plain text, no preview pane, all the necessary security in place. Creating a new post is in plain text. But... when I paste formatted text into this plain text post, it will be visible as formatted. I have everything news-related set to 'plain text', and this will happen in both responses and fresh posts. When I save the post (causing it to end up in 'drafts') and reopen it, the formatting is not visible anymore. How is this 'fake formatting' possible? This message will say it's plain text, but until it...

Converting Rich Text Format to Plain Text
I have a textbox in my web form for users for "description". What happen is that users usually open a word document and copy the text from the word document to the textbox in my form. This created a problem for my application since the information input from my web form will eventually converted to a text file serving as an input for another application which can only accept plain text. Because of the rich text format, some special characters are not recognized correctly.

Firefox: Plain text copy and paste WITH URL reference
For Firefox 2.0: I have several plugins that will allow copying plain text but what I am seeking is one that copies plain text but prefixes or suffixes the originating page URL on automatically so that it is easy to grab references along with the page address.
