FWIW, I can cut and paste japanese just fine in both directions between
Emacs (started with `-q', so the defaults seem OK) and mozilla-firefox
0.9.3 (I think this roughly corresponds to mozilla 1.7.2).

selection-coding-system's value is `compound-text-with-extensions'.

LANG is set to `ja_JP.UTF-8'.

I've noticed in the past that the setting of LANG is crucial to making
Mozilla do CJK cut-n-paste correctly, and that in general Mozilla is
pretty fucked up in this area -- if LANG is _not_ set `properly', then
it will screw up cut-n-paste.

Here's Mozilla bug report that may be related:


Occam's razor split hairs so well, I bought the whole argument!
