Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150605094246

Steps to reproduce:

- Open a scratchpad (1st) via either hamburger button or Shift+F4 (it doesn't matter).
- Type "test". 
- Press Save to save it in a file.
- Mark the word "test" with mouse, and rightclick>Copy.
- Open a 2nd scratchpad via either hamburger button or Ctrl+N (it doesn't matter)
- rightclick>Paste
- switch to the 1st scratchpad


Actual results:

You'll notice that the 1st scratchpad window title now has an asterisk (*)
meaning that it's content was supposedly edited.
So, if you try to close the scratchpad you'll be prompted "Do you want to save the changes you made to this scratchpad".


Expected results:

This should not happen.

Correction: both scratchpads must be opened via hamburger button for the issue to occur.

So, corrected STR:
- open a scratchpad (1st) via hamburger button
- type "test"
- press Save to save it in a file
- mark the word "test" with mouse, and rightclick>Copy
- open a 2nd scratchpad via hamburger button
- rightclick>Paste
- switch to the 1st scratchpad.
