Works just fine for me.

How do you copy? Keyboard shortcut or mouse context menu?

Please make a screenshot of klipper's contents after you copied, after you closed rekonq and after you tried pasting in firefox. Then upload all 3.

Also please attach the file ~/.kde/share/config/klipperrc, if it exists.

keyboard shortcut.

Klipper's contents show the copied text (in this case a dolphin window, it happens in other applications than rekonq when you close the windows), and the copied text stays in the contents that show when clicking klipper's system tray icon, but despite that, it still does not paste.

$ cat klipperrc
