I am recently experiencing an issue that CTRL+C can fail to send selected text to the clip board frequently. It was super trouble for me but I thought it was only me because no one mentioned about it.
Today I found that a mini menu pops up right after selecting a text. It offers an option to hide the menu always. Once I hide it, the issue has been solved! It saves my life.
Therefore, the problem is, when the mini menu pops up after selecting a text, CTRL+C short cut is ignored, until the menu disappears.

Hey there @Katsutoshi_Hayashida, thanks for the post! Just wanted to let you know I've shared this post with the team that works on the mini menu, and thank you for posting what was causing this for you.

@Katsutoshi_Hayashida I thought I was going mad, as of late it really seemed a lot of times the CTRL+C just didn't work, and I thought it might be my keyboard, as lately the Z character seems to skip. But as I also had this problem in Edge with the same type of keyboard at work I was thinking it couldn't be that.
But I hadn't even noticed the little popup which does appear for a short time.
Now I'm glad I know I'm not crazy and it really is Edge.
I hope they fix it soon, as something simple as this should have been caught at testlevel.
But at least thanks to you we have a workaround.

I am also using 97.0.1072.55 stable but the option still reads "show mini menu when selecting text in pdfs" and there is no mini menu when selecting text on web pages, only for PDF. For 98.0.1108.15 dev the option is there and Ctrl-C works without disabling this option.

Oh great, then i am not crazy after all.
Disabling that menu solved the issue, who would use it anyway.
