LO Writer Will Not Paste External Clipboard Correctly

Copy from external program to paste into LO Writer does not work.

Can cut from LO Writer then paste OK but I cannot copy from Firefox or Chromium browser or any external program (like Notepad+) into LO Writer.

Copy from external program using menu or control-C and pasting into LibreOffice Writer does not update LO clipboard, when I use "paste" or Ctrl-v the LAST copied data in LO gets pasted, not the newly copied data.

If I open a text program like Kate I can paste, I can paste into Firefox or Chromium, but when I go to LO Writer, I cannot paste the new clipboard, only the last previously copied data in LibreOffice. If I go to another program (as previously stated) I do get the new data.

LibreOffice Writer Version: Build ID: 6.2.1-1 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.0; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US Calc: threaded
