Created attachment 8600696 [details]
Majordomo results.eml

In the attached mail, if you select the "subscribe postfix-users email@gmail.com" text and press shift+click on reply (for plain text reply), then in the compose window opened, the space between "postfix-users" and "email@gmail.com" is gone.

Note that there is a duplicate report:

Reproducible with TB 42.0a1 (2015-08-09)

Possibly related to "Bug 1193153 - Copy paste steals multiple spaces (blanks)"

@reporter:
Does that problem also happen in an account where you use only plain text? with such a test we can find out whether this is a html-plain text problem or a general one.

Additional info:
a) Because of "Bug 684924 - Cannot drag and drop .eml file from Windows folder 
   into email client folder" I did  not test with SeaMonkey.
This reproduces in version 38?

Please ignore the previous three comments. They are mostly wrong.

I've been such a fool when testing it: You need to <SHIFT> reply!!

I've tried the oldest TB I have installed here, 3.1.
This shows the bug. So it's really noting new at all here.

No idea why my bug 1167926 was duped to this, as the STR are different and the bug isn't showing in the Compose-window, but only in the sent mail.

Will retest again later with a more recent version.

Maybe a good decision, maybe not. I undid the duplication for now, since the other bug is "dataloss".
