VisualEditor: Paste from Word to Firefox inserts garbage
Open, Stalled, LowPublic

Cut 'n paste from a MS Word document into FF inserts several HTML comments which appear in VE as circled exclamation marks. Hovering reveals the lengthy MSIE-specific comments.

Note that pasting the same thing into Chrome does not end up with the lengthly comments.
