3.Type something
4.Strg+a, Strg+c
5.Paste in FF -> Only ????? appear
but: 6.Paste in OOo -> all correct.

Any idea?

Tried this application. I believe that the same (?????) happens if you try to paste the text from it to a regular OS/2 application such as e.exe. Obviously, Greek symbols cannot be represented in your 8-bit code page so Java (Odin) inserts them to the clipboard using a custom Unicode clipboard format but FF seems to prefer the standard 8-bit CF_TEXT format (that cannot represent these symbols and contains ?????) instead of the custom Unicode format, while OOo prefers the latter and therefore works.

I think the problem should be reported to the OS/2 FF maintainers. If you happen to get a proof that it's Odin that needs to be enhanced to provide data in a FF-compatible format, feel free to open a new ticket in the Odin trac (http://svn.netlabs.org/java) and provide more details there.
