Mozilla does not allow me to paste long enough text to textarea of a form. This is extremely annoying when trying to copy&paste a spam from mail client to Spamcop's form. It works with Netscape 4.x and IE. I have not tested what is the maximum allowed size, I'll leave it up to you... Versions: mozilla-1.0.0-9 galeon-1.2.5-1 redhat-release-7.3-1 gnome-core-18.104.22.168-54
Some more information to debug this... It seems that if amount of data in copy/paste buffer exceeds X bytes, Mozilla ignores the new data when I focus to Mozilla window. Instead Mozilla keeps _old_ data in it's own buffer, the data it had there from some earlier copy/paste. Someone who knows about how Mozilla handles copy buffers in X environment should comment on this...
Is bug 86262 relevant here ?
comment #2: no, I don't think so. the buffer seems to be 4000 bytes big. (did a lot of wc -c'ing and copy/pasting). This certainly isn't a formcontrol bug.. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 56219 ***
