From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.6+) Gecko/20011203 Netscape6/6.1b1 BuildID: 2001120303 When using the toolbar to remove multiple indented bulleted or number lines, Composer freezes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Composer 2. Enter 10 letters of text 3. Click on the bullet or or numbered list button on the toolbar 4. Click on indent twenty-five times. 5. Click on the bullet or number list button on the toolbar (the same one you clicked in step 3). Actual Results: Composer will freeze. An end task will need to be done to break out of it. Expected Results: Composer should not freeze when removing the tags. I've had it freeze with as few as twenty indents. With between 15 and 20 indents, it will hang for a bit, but recover. This was reproduced on two other machines, one using 98 (not SE), and the other using 95 OSR2.

I consulted with joe on this one, definitely this needs looking at. I can reproduce on Windows NT, suspect it is cross platform (damn that Microsoft, I can't use XP now cause they stole the term from us). I also observed that around 15 characters, I go *totally* glacial when hitting the OL button (or the UL button) to undo the list. And I lock up at twenty. We must be iterating past some boundary or something, I'm trying hard to think of an algorithm that would slow down so exponentially like this one is.

Already spent half a day on this. It's fairly complex - the post processing code is the culprit, and I suspect the editor's concept of the range of the document that has changed. Estimating 2 days
