Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open in composer http://jmvanel.free.fr/test/bug-mozilla2.html
2. select the first 2 lines (dl tag)
3. paste with middle button at following empty bullet

Actual Results:  
The composer window doesn't refresh itself anymore, and the top command shows
that it takes 80% of CPU forever.


Behaves differently in display mode "HTML tags"
Yes, I can see this happening with:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040514
It seems like some infinitive loop is occuring.

It's ok if you only post visible text, e.g.:
Tom Hanks ... Viktor Navorski

but if you try to insert text invisible in Normal View, e.g.:
<li>Tom Hanks ... Viktor Navorski</li>

then Composer hangs. (Does that make sense?)

I am constantly frustrated by this on Windows 2000 with 1.8a4. It doesn't just
require the middle-click as described in comment #1, I use Ctrl+V.

Confirming; setting OS to All, Severity to Major.
I think this should block 1.8
Severity: normal → major
