User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_5) AppleWebKit/537.77.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.1.5 Safari/537.77.4 Steps to reproduce: Replied to plain text newsgroup message that contains lines with leading whitespace. Example text: s a a ======= s + 4 spaces + a 5 spaces + a 7 = signs Actual results: Each subsequent reply prepends a space onto the quoted lines containing whitespace. First quote: > s a > a > ======= > s 4 x spaces a > 5 x spaces a Second quote of same content: >> s a >> a >> ======= >> s 4 x spaces a >> 5 x spaces a Expected results: Formatting of the existing quote should remain consistent whether lead characters are numeric, alphabetic or whitespace. Indenting should be consistent across character types.
Further testing would seem to indicate that this is related to format=flowed. Setting that pref to false causes quoting to behave normally. mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed;false By default, this pref is true.
Summary: Replies add space to lines with leading whitespace → format flowed: Replies add space to lines with leading whitespace
