First i think the problem is more than just c&p, but I don't know the Chatzilla code so good to know what's wrong here. When you mark some chat log and copy it into the clipboard you get: xyz you probably want --enable-crypto as well abc do I need to do a 'make clean' or something? abc I already built once without these options xyz yeah, that'd be a good idea abc thanks guys So first i would like that Chatzilla also copys the < > around the nicknames into the clipboard. And second that the tab key before the 2nd line until the end of the c&p will be elimanted (also this could be a regression i would need to test with, at least happens with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040513).
that's not a chatzilla problem. The < and > characters are inserted with css :before and :after rules, which mozilla doesn't include in the selection. Taking a guess that DOM: Traversal-Range might be the correct component.
