They do not, the previous content of the clipboard is undesturbed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch an app such as Notepad to provide a place to paste into; 2. Copy some recognizable text to the clipboard; 3. In Firebird, select the URI in the address bar [AB]; 4. Either Ctl+c or Ctl+x; 5. Go to the Notepad app and paste (Ctl+v) the clipboard contents. Actual Results: The original (step 2) contents of the clipboard are pasted. Also, when using Ctl+x [cut] the string was not removed from the AB. Expected Results: The URI copied from the AB in step 4 should be pasted. If Ctl-x was done, it should have cleared the AB.
Tweaking summary, OS Confirmed on Win2000, 20031022 build. It should be noted that you also cannot paste into the URL bar using Ctrl-V. This is a regression from yesterday's build as far as I can tell. Also, the bug is Firebird only, today's Mozilla nightly works fine. There were some giant checkins over the last couple days, but my suspicion is that bug 200884 broke things, its changes to autocomplete.xml deal specifically with ignoring Ctrl -key combinations.
CC'ing Chanial...I apologize for the spam if you had nothing to do with this, but the checkin of this code looked like a likely suspect to my untrained eye: // this handler is called before the one in search.xml // that's sucks because the next line will also cancel // keys like ctrl-L, ctrl-N in the search bar. if (aEvent.ctrlKey || aEvent.metaKey || aEvent.altKey) return false; // don't capture key + modifiers Am I onto something?
Tweaking summary some more; -> toolbars; -> major. Reassigning to Pierre (and toolbar QA). Workaround: Right-Click in the location bar, select cut/copy/paste.
yup, I know I introduced this problem. I will fix it soon.
I don't see this bug on my Linux build Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031022 Firebird/0.7+ (persist,gtk2+xft)
Sorry for that last comment, I didn't follow the instructions properly. I can reproduce this bug.
Using: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031018 Firebird/0.7 I'm experiancing a similar problem, where ctrl+c and such work, but it should put it in the middle-click buffer if I select the text in the address bar
I saw exactly what Jon saw (comment 2) in autocomplete.xml (around line 325-340ish). And yes, it is control-key specific; shift-insert works to paste in the address bar. I'm going to overnight autobuild a build with a backout of the patching from bug 200884 if anyone's interested. (Of course they are, I hear everyone complaining.) Backing out the changes to bug 200884 seemed like a good temporary solution for custom builders. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=31209
/me bets it will be fixed tonight
fixed. I should have earn money, here. :)
Thanks Pierre, works again. -> verified. http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?date=explicit&mindate=10%2F23%2F2003+23%3A55&maxdate=10%2F23%2F2003+23%3A55
