From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [de] (Windows NT 5.0; U) BuildID: 2001121508 Using the HTML composer for mail/news, when quoting something: Example: --------- > blahblahblah > blahblahyaddayadda My reply here.... ----------------------- turns into the following when it has been sent: ----------------------- > blahblahblah > blahblahyaddayadda > My reply here.... ----------------------- and extra ">" is added between quoted and new material. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Reply to a message using the HTML composer. Actual Results: ">" is added between quoted and new material. Expected Results: ">" shouldn't be added. This might be connected to #102842.
I see this too and it annoys me. Bug might be in the serializer (Browser: DOM To Text), not sure. Holger, can't you confirm bugs? CONFIRMing.
> Holger, can't you confirm bugs? I wouldn't dare! :-) -Holger
I see this bug only, if I reply to a non-flowed mail (i.e. the ones emitted by 4.x etc., not Mozilla. (flowed and non-flowed plaintext converters generate different HTML.)
I see the extra ">" all the time, whether the original /plaintext/ mail was in f=f or not. When the original has been in html and I reply in html or plaintext the extra ">" isn't there. - Holger
Seems it's not a bug, it's a (mis)feature to separate different quotation levels. For me notoriously appears in plaintext editing - not always, in some 90% (couldn't make out the rule though) and is very annoying with deeply nested replies, i.e reasonable: >>>>> a >>>> b >>> c >> d > e f after two replies turns into annoying: >>>>>>> a >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>> b >>>>>> >>>>>> >>>>> c >>>>> >>>>> >>>> d >>>> >>>> >>> e >>> >>> >>f >> >> >g > h Can it be related to Bug 34941?
> Can it be related to Bug 34941? No, that bug is about the plaintext composer, while this one is about the HTML composer. And no, it's not a feature. I'll mark bug 122925 a dup of this one. Not sure, why I filed a new bug back then. (Oversight, different bug?) Here's the reproduction from the other bug: Reproduction: 1. Reply to a non-flowed plaintext mail (as sent by 4.x). 2. Put cursor in the quote, hit Return to break it. 3. Enter your text 4. Send as plaintext Actual result: Somebody wrote: > quote > quote > Your text > quote Exptected result: Somebody wrote: > quote > quote Your text > quote Additional Comments: That might be the problem I describe in <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102842#c12>, I don't remember anymore. This might be libmime or Composition.
