    Hello Mahesh,

    This is a limitation of the Mozilla based browsers.

    Please, note that to protect users' private information, unprivileged scripts cannot invoke the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands in the Mozilla, Safari / Chrome and Opera rich text editor, so the corresponding buttons will not work. You can cut and paste content in Firefox, Safari /Chrome and Opera only using the Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V shortcut or the Paste from Word dialog.
    You can also paste content from the browsers menu: Edit -> Paste.
    More information is available in this help article: Cleaning Word Formatting.

    The Cut, Copy and Paste commands could be executed via JavaScript code only under Internet Explorer.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
