Closed Bug 158067 Opened 17 years ago Closed 17 years ago
MOZ mail (Messenger) does not accept more than 4120 bytes from X11 cut&paste buffer
Can I reproduce it ? YES, any time STEPS TO reproduce it: A) create with "gvim" an ASCII file with more than 4120 characters (lets say 10000 characters). The resulting file will be more than one screen long. Keep the file opened on the screen B) open mozilla e-mail and click on "compose" button C) click with the mouse into "body" part of the newly created window D) select (mark, highlight) with "LEFT" mouse button more than 4120 characters in the "gvim" window E) move the mouse into the "body" field of the e-mail compose window F) click with the "MIDDLE" mouse button to paste the text from "gvim" into e-mail compose window ACTUAL RESULT: nothing happens WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN ? user should be able to paste the X11 buffer into the e-mail compose window G) repeat the above procedure but select LESS than 4120 characters RESULT: everything is nice and dandy (a.k.a. WORKS OK !!) ADDITIONAL NOTE: NS4.7x Messenger works fine with, at least, 800K characters. I did not test it with more than 0.8MB. my system: RH6.2 kernel 2.2.14-5.0 MOZILLA: Mozilla 1.1a Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020610
changing component to MAIL/NEWS or, perhaps, I should change it to COMPOSER ??

yes you are right... I think that the ORIGINAL bug 56219 should be marked CRITICAL !!!
vrfy dupe. Igor, please read the following to learn what we call "critical". http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/bug_status.html#severity
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
Yes, I clicked on the link and I found there the following: Major major loss of function Minor minor loss of function, or other problem where easy workaround is present Trivial cosmetic problem like I could not find there the definition of "Normal". Right now this bug is defined as "Normal". Yes, I do agree with you, it is NOT critical bug. It should be marked "Major", because is is a major loss of function (aka.. you can NOT paste more than 4K of data into the body of the e-mail). I am using the e-mail a lot and I do cut and paste a big chunkes of ASCII text into the e-mail. Because of the limit of 4KB I am NOT using mozilla's e-mail as my everyday e-mail client. I am still using NS4.7x Messanger. So, this is a major loss of function and the bug should be marked "Major" and not "Normal"
reassign in case bugs are reopened
