Editor: support cut/paste buttons on FF3

FF2 can only cut/paste via ctrl-v and ctrl-x, but I bet we can fix this restriction in FF3, once we move to contentEditable instead of iframes. Yes?

no, we can't. That said, we need to hide the copy/paste icons entirely for browsers that can't handle them or provide it as an option. Having buttons on the toolbar that you can *never use* is freaking terrible UI and must be fixed for 1.2

The buttons are in the toolbar on purpose, so that users don't get confused when they don't see the buttons. Whether or not having them there is a good idea is debatable, but I'm going to follow in the footsteps of and leave them there.

These buttons should not be on the toolbar if they are not functional. Ideally, they would be made to work. Short of that, they should be removed.

Well, you'll need to present an argument rather than just claiming that's true (ie that it's better to remove the buttons than to have a dialog explaining how to cut/paste).

As I alluded to above, the buttons are there for discoverability about how to cut/paste, and also, all the major DHTML editors I know, like google, fckeditor, and tinymce have cut/paste buttons or menu items that popup a dialog telling the user how to cut/paste.

Also note that dijit users can customize the toolbar to have whatever buttons they want.
