I'm able to paste from Mozilla, Firefox, and Konqueror into a Scribus 
text frame by using the "Copy" command from the browser's "Edit" menu 
and the "Paste" command from Scribus' "Edit" menu (after entering 
text edit mode).

Pasting with the middle mouse button in the Story Editor worked from 
Mozilla and Konqueror but only after using the "Copy" command from 
the "Edit" menu in each browser. This did not work from 
Mozilla-Firefox however.
