From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510 BuildID: 2002051006 I use HTML format for composing mails and text format for sending. Sometimes the formatting is really messed up. It should reflect as close as possible what is reflected in the HTML format. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make sure that "Compose Messages in HTML" is selected for the account you are trying to send the mail from. 2. Compose a New Message to yourself and enter the text formatted as show in the figure mozCompose.jpg. 3. Select the format for the Sent mail to be plain text. 4. Send the mail and check the mail you receive. Actual Results: The entries in the table were all aligned in independent lines one after the other (as seen in figure mozSent.jpg). Expected Results: The entries in the table should be as rendered onscreen as is done by Netscape 4.x (as seen in nsSent.jpg). I think the bug would also occur if I tried saving an HTML file As Plain Text, though I haven't tried it.
IMO, the priority should be major since the default for Mozilla is to compose messages in HTML and send out messages in plain text. Hence anyone doing a bit fancy composing using tables would encounter the bug.
I see this too, on mac9.1, 10.1 linux and winxp with branch build 20020522. Confirming the bug.
Akkana--is there another bug on this issue? Should this bug go to Tanu?

There is a bug about implementing real table support for html->plaintext, in the browser dom->text component.
Still confirmed. Thunderbird 52.0.1 (32-bit) Windows 7 64-bit
