Run Emacs under gdb and set breakpoints at
selection_data_to_lisp_data and lisp_data_to_selection_data,
then see how bytes are decoded/encoded.

At least, with this Mozilla:
        Mozilla 1.0
        Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0)
        Gecko/20020615 Debian/1.0.0-3
I found very strange behavour.  It seems that Mozilla is
very sensitive to locale.

If you run Mozilla under LANG=ja_JP.eucjp, you can
copy&paste Japanese text with Emacs correctly.  But, in that
case, if you copy&paste latin-1 from Mozilla to Emacs,
Mozilla encode latin-1 by euc-jp while treating all latin-1
chars as JISX0212.  Thus, in that case, before pasting the
characters into Emacs, you must do C-x C-m X euc-jp RET.

And if you run Mozilla under LANG=de_DE, Mozilla correctly
handles latin-1, but doesn't handle Japanese characters at
all in copy&paste even if they are displayed correctly.

If you run Mozilla under LANG=C, Mozilla doesn't handle
latin-1 nor japanese characters in copy&paste.
