Since switching to Mozilla 1.6 any forms I submit from websites send the data in
one long string.

In the previous version each piece of data was on superate lines.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter details on form and submit

Actual Results:  
Data in email comes out in string

Expected Results:  
Put each piece of data on a seperate line

WFM with a Linux Gtk2 build from today when using the plaintext editor in the
Compose window.

With the HTML editor I see the described "bug". I tested this with the nightly
build and mozilla 1.5 and both behave the same. So this is not a (recent)

Should we perhaps always open a plaintext Compose window for a mailto: form or
is this bug report INVALID?

Yes, we should, imo.
Although actually.... that would leave a problem with other mail clients, no? 
We need to think of a way to deal with that.
