ctrl + shift + V does plain text paste on Chrome and Firefox on Linux and Windows (removes all HTML formatting from WYSIWYG pasted text).

I think Chrome honours cmd + shift + V, but this doesn't seem to work in Firefox 6.

Is there a shortcut to paste as plain text on Firefox?

If Firefox doesn't support this, you can use Plain Clip as a workaround.
