Missing blank line when selectively quoting/replying
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0 Build ID: 20150112203352 Steps to reproduce: Sample email to reply to, containing bottom-reply formatting in plain text: ---BEGIN MESSAGE--- On xx-yy-zz, Bob Alice wrote: > How about doing more foo with bar? Sounds good. Also, what do you think about baz-ing the barg? ---END MESSAGE--- 1. Highlight the first 4 lines of the email (up to "Sounds good.") 2. Click "Reply", to selectively quote the highlighted text I'm defaulting to plain text and reply-on-top in my settings, FYI. Actual results: The quoted text is placed in the reply email, but the third line (a blank line) is missing. The resulting reply is initially formatted something like this: ---BEGIN MESSAGE--- On AA-BB-CC, Jim Jones wrote: > On xx-yy-zz, Bob Alice wrote: > > How about doing more foo with bar? > Sounds good. ---END MESSAGE--- Note how there is no blank/quoted line between 'How about...?' and 'Sounds good.' Expected results: The reply email should look like this: ---BEGIN MESSAGE--- On AA-BB-CC, Jim Jones wrote: > On xx-yy-zz, Bob Alice wrote: > > How about doing more foo with bar? > > Sounds good. ---END MESSAGE--- Notice how there is a blank line in the quote before 'Sounds good.' Also note that this only happens when doing selective quoting. If I remove step 1 in the STR (i.e., I don't highlight any text), I get the proper quote formatting and blank lines. For now, I work around the selective quoting bug by avoiding selective quoting, and just trimming the reply in the Compose window. Also note that a similar behavior occurs when replying to plain text in HTML mode, but it does not occur when replying to HTML text in plain or HTML modes.
