This is a well-known issue that exists for a long time. Sometimes LibreOffice can't treat the clipboard data correctly.

As a workaround, you can insert the text using "Edit->Paste special" (choose "Unformattes text" there).

Case is actual for Firefox+LibreOfficeWriter.
If I use chromium+LOWriter the results is copied well.
I think it is not problem of Libreffice, but Firefox.

As freedesktop bug states, this is a problem of Libreffice which sometimes cannot treat clipboard data corectly. Firefox works fine, it puts the data to clipboard as expected, but LibreOffice sometimes can insert it only using "Edit->Paste special" menu item as "Unformatted text". Otherwise it tries to format that data and fails.

It looks like LO guys don't know how to resolve this issue completely.
