Copy/Paste from IE/Mozilla to Eclipse bug

Hello,

When I copy/paste within Eclipse, there are no issues. When I copy text from another editor (NoteTab, for example) and paste it within Eclipse there are no issues. However, when I try and copy text from either the Mozilla browser or IE and paste it in Eclipse, only the first character of the selected text is placed. When I copy text from Eclipse and try to paste it into Mozilla/IE, I get garbage pasted in (unknown characters - a series of question marks or boxes).

Is this a bug in Eclipse, my system, or did something go skeevy when I downloaded the IDE?

Many thanks.
