You don't state you OS or LO version. There have been a number of Bug reports on this using Windows 10. See this post.

That is unacceptable. I switched to LibraOffice because it is a superior product, and because I want to get away from the Microsoft monopoly. All I want to do is copy and past from a website. I know I can do it by copying into Word, and then onto LLibraOffice , but that is, as I said, unacceptable. I might as well return to Gate’s obscene monopoly.

Please use a comment and not an answer to respond to an answer. It is best if you file your problem as a Bug report.

To isolate the problem, we need to know several things, at least these: Which Operating System? Which browser? Which version of LibreOffice? We really are trying to help!
