From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011 BuildID: 2001101117 Sorry about the following vague problem description. First noticed in the email editor then subsequently in the composer editor when one is attempting to edit existing text (meaning only that one has moved back to a certain text selection entered possibly moments before). The text selection may wrap from the end of a sentence down past the next LF (not visible but presumably there) and possibly down another line or two when some lesser selection is desired. IOW, the editor presumes I want more in the selection than I intended to select. It happens frequently at the end of email compositions when I attempt to select and eliminate the extra blank lines at the below the last text before the tag line starting with the double dash (ie '--' ). IOW, I seem unable to select just a portion of the blank space to say remove two out of five blank lines at the end of the email. This seems to occur when selecting text with my mouse then some combination of Control & 'X', 'C' , or 'V' Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.as above 2. 3. Actual Results: see description Expected Results: I expect the ditor to select only what I have 'described' with the mouse and not automagically more. Sorry again for being so vague but others must have experienced peculiar behavior from these editors. Please confirm that the editors for composer and email composing are the same?
Sorry David, but this is not a valid bug report. You need to follow the bug writing guidelines....Please list precise steps to recreate the problem. We need reproducible steps so we can track down the problem. What you described below is kind of vague.
Kathy says here that the problem is that users can't see where the cr/lf are.... assign to Joe.

This is probably everywhere. Using Mozilla Win2k build 2001102203, simply select a small portion of text from a comment in this bug, paste it into Notepad, watch two carriage returns get added to the pasted content.
No response. Reporter initially mentions this frequently happens when selecting frmo a signature. Signatures are commonly pre-formatted text. Resolving as dup of bug 98572 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 98572 ***
