From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: 2002052306 It seems that composer stores absolute URLs for images file:///c:/.../file.jpg instead of relative ones whenever I cut an image and paste it somewhere else in the document. I can't figure out how to set it to store relative file names in preferences. Absolute file names aren't good for publishing web pages. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start up composer on an existing web page with images (IMG tag). 2. Cut an existng image. 3. Move the cursor using the mouse. 4. Paste the image somewhere new. 5. Note that the file name is relative. It may be necessary to work on a different partition than where composer starts, at least that's what I'm doing. Actual Results: I get an absolute path to the file name. Expected Results: Since the image started with a relative file name, I wanted a relative file name when finished. I don't want to check a box each time.
I have confirmed this occurs after cutting'n pasting _any_ object (image, URL, etc...) in Mozilla 0.9.9 on Linux (Ximian). I have just confirmed it again in Mozilla 1.0.0 on Windows (Mozilla.ORG .exe).
-->brade (probably a duplicate bug) note: when you publish the url will be changed to be relative to the publishing location (if it's possible to be relative to that)

Confirmed also in 1.1... very annoying behaviour that is hard to spot, because you check uploaded pages from the same location that you created web pages, and everything 'looks ok' even when it's not...
