Description

16 years ago
I use Netscape to track my investments.  Everday I track them by copying data 
from a display accessed thru v 4.75 build 20000815 and paste into Excel.  

I noticed today that Mozilla v 1.0 had beem released, so I downloaded it and 
decided to use it to check my investment.  Normally, the data copied from 
Netscape appears as vertical groups of five cells in one column spread occcupying 
69 lines when pasted into the spsreadsheet.When I did the same in Mozilla build 
2002052917, the data was condensed into 18 lines.  


My suspicion is that Mozilla didn't capture the carriage returns, but capatured 
the new paragraph marks.  I just had this thought during as I was entering this 
bug report.  After your system gives me a bug report number, I will go back and 
recapture the data as text and paste in into an addemdum to the bug report.  If 
adding an addemdum isn't possible, please email me and I will reply with a 
message containing a screen dump as well as the text from what I saw.

Bob, it's entirely possible that Mozilla copies text differently than Netscape 4.x.  However, that in 
and of itself doesn't necessarily constitute a bug in Mozilla.

You're going to need to tell us what URL you're accessing, or provide the HTML source of the 
page in question. Then, describe what you do, what you expect to occur, and what actually 
occurs.
