Large text pasted into ANY textbox (including browser text forms) does not show up
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 When I paste a fairly large amount of text, it will not show up. The browser or mail window acts as though no paste event occured. I can paste into SciTE the whole text, so I know it is in the clipboard. I then cut chunks out of SciTE and paste them in small pieces into a textbox/mail window in Mozilla. You have no idea how annoying that is, this has been a problem since at least 1.3, it just finally **** me off enough to complain about it. I was hoping it would be fixed by now. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Do an lspci -vv on a linux command line, that should be enough text to do it. If not, then "cat /var/log/boot.msg" and copy that from a terminal. That will surely do the trick. Then paste it into a mozilla form textbox, or a email composition window. Actual Results: Nothing. I think copying a large block of text, and then pasting it to another app should do something. Other apps apparently agree, because they do something when I do that. Expected Results: It should have pasted the text, pretty straight forward. Doesn't like much over 15 lines of text it seems... I haven't whittled it down to a specific number of lines, but if that would help, I sure can...
