From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120 BuildID: 20011120 When composing an HTML web page or mail message containing HTML, if I select a text and insert a URL (with Insert/Link), the text is not colored and underlined as usual. Thus the linked text cannot be distinguished from a normal text. This used to work well with Mozilla 0.9.2.1 Gecko/20010901. The problem is with Mozilla 0.9.6 Gecko/20011120. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla Composer (or Mozilla Mail) 2. Choose New Composer Page (or choose New Message or Composer in Mozilla Mail) 3. Write some text 4. Select the text 5. Choose insert link (menu Insert/Link) 6. Enter some URL (http://www.mozilla.org) 7. Choose OK. 8. The linked text is not displayed as a link. The text is not colored and underlined as a usual link. Actual Results: The linked text is not displayed as a linked text, but as simple text. The text is not colored and underlined as a usual link. This bug makes composing Web pages or mail messages containing HTML very difficult. Expected Results: When editing with Composer using the normal view, the linked text should be displayed as in Mozilla (following the WYSIWYG principle).
Frank your report was fine (the fact the bug has been already reported by someone else isn't contrary to that) but you must use "blocker" severity with caution. This bug would never make developers and testers stop doing their normal work. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 108196 ***
