Why are Cut, Copy, and Paste unavailable in the Google Sheets edit menu?

If you right click on a cell in Google Sheets, the edit menu appears and shows the Copy, Cut, and Paste options. When you click on one of them, a message comes up that says “these actions are unavailable via the edit menu, but you can still use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X, and Ctrl+V.”

Why are these options unavailable via the edit menu?

You’d have to ask the person who made that design decision. I don’t know if they happen to be Dopers.

It sounds like there are issues in giving web apps access to the clipboard in different browsers. They seem to work under chrome, but I take it the OP is not using chrome.

Correct - I’m using Firefox.
