Build Date & Platform Bug Found: Win32 commercial seamonkey build 1999-12-01-13-m12 installed on P166 win98 Linux commercial seamonkey build 1999-12-01-13-m12 installed on P200 RedHat 6.1 MacOS commercial seamonkey build 1999-12-01-13-m12 installed on G3 MacOS 8.6 Overview Description: I set my user preference to use a plain text editor as my default compose window. I reply to a plain text mail message and it quotes the text with ">" characters. I send the message to myself and view it. The ">" displays as a blue bar. I viewed my replied message in Communicator 4.7 and it displayed the quotes as ">". The page source confirms that the ">" are present in the message. Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed It is a Messenger display problem because replied messages from 4.7 to 5.0 also show up as blue bar. This problem occurs under POP and IMAP. Steps to Reproduce: 0) Deleted my previous mozregistry file and my existing profile. 1) Launch Mozilla with the -mail parameter 2) Enter a profile name and continue. Messenger launches and the mail wizard appears. 3) Enter all the necessary information for a POP or IMAP account 4) Exit. 5) Edit my prefs.js file. Add the user_pref line: user_pref("mail.identity.id1.compose_html", false); 6) Start Messenger again 7) Send a plain text message to yourself and an account that you can view the page source of the message in Communicator 4.7 8) Retrieve the mail message It is a plain text message 9) Reply ALL to the message again. It is quoted with ">" 10) Send the message 11) Retrieve and view the mail message The ">" characters display as a blue bar. Actual Results: The outer most ">" quoted text display with a blue bar. It misleading because initially I thought my message was being sent as rich text. Expected Results: I expect it to reads what's in the mail message and It display the ">" character as a ">" character. Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On: Additional Information: If I view a message with multiple replies, the inner most quoted text display correctly with ">" characters. The outer most ">" display with the HTML blue bar.
Will investigate. - rhp
> It is a Messenger display problem because replied messages from > 4.7 to 5.0 also show up as blue bar Do I understand this correctly, that when you create a msg in 4.7 and reply to it in 4.7 and the view it in Mozilla, you also see the bar? > If I view a message with multiple replies, the inner most quoted text display > correctly with ">" characters. The outer most ">" display with the HTML blue > bar. What happens, if you only reply in Mozilla (several times)? Do you see several blue bars and no ">"s? The blue bar is a feature. Mozilla doesn't sent real plain text, but format=flowed, see bug #16398. You can see that in the content type header.
You right Ben, there a different if you reply in 4.7 vs. 5.0. -When you create a msg in 4.7 and reply to it in 4.7 and the view it in Mozilla, you do not see the blue bar. -When you create a msg in 4.7 and reply to it in 5.0 and the view it in Mozilla, you do see the blue bar. If you only reply in Mozilla (several times), the outer most ">" displays as a blue bar. The inner ">" display as ">". I do not see several blue bars and I do see ">"s?
In my last update, I was using the win32 commercial seamonkey build 2000-01-12-11-m13 installed on a P166 running Win98
Peter, the behaviour is as expected. I would mark this bug INVALID, but I leave the decision up to you or rhp. However, you should see several blue bars after several Mozilla replies (and *only* Mozilla replies). I would file a bug on *this*. (For the case you do, cc Danial Bratell.)
Hi Peter, After doing some testing, I realized that this was fixed a while ago. It makes sense too because we used to be "hacking" in a <BLOCKQUOTE> for quoting operations. Now, we use the Editor's "InsertAsQuotation()" API calls so you get the correct results. - rhp
