Occasionally, when I cut and paste a large clipboard into a textarea, it does not paste correctly. Sometimes it loses part of the paste but more often after pasting, you just dont see anything. It only seems to occur when the data to be put in the textarea is 'large', say 15k or more? Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.create a form with textarea 2.paste a 15 - 30k document into it 3. Actual Results: Sometimes it works and I see my entire clipboard contents pasted into the textarea properly. Sometimes it gets most of the contents into the textarea. Sometimes I see nothing after I paste. Expected Results: Accepted full clipboard contents to be pasted into textarea I am also able to recreate this on Mozilla/OSX. Sometimes restarting the browser helps. Sometimes I have to just go find another machine and use IE or Opera, however, it seems Opera has the same problem but less often. I have never been able to recreate the problem using IE for PC. Hope this helps! Let me know what you find or can tell me about this.
please try 1.4b. 1.0.1 is a year old.
Same triubles with 1.4b under Linux
Only one way to copy large ammount of text data to mozilla - is to save that text to html and then open as file in mozilla, copy it to clipboard and paste to textarea :(
I am able to reproduce this (OpenOffice.org 1.1beta2 and Mozilla 2003-05-12-05 on Linux). The caret in the textarea stalls for a second, then it starts blinking again but no text appears. Could we please mark this bug as new or dupe it to something else? Is this this same problem we get copying the text of an OpenOffice.org (OOo) word processor document into Mozilla e-mail message? This doesn't work with OOo 1.1beta2 and Mozilla 2003-05-12-05. There is an OOo bug for this: <http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=13235> That OOo bug was closed as invalid because the analysis was that this is a Mozilla bug: AFAIK this was a bug in Mozilla. Mozilla pretent to support the clipboard format text/html but it wasn't able to Please indicate whether this pasting into an e-mail message is the same bug or not. If not, i'll file a new bug.
