Thread Previews on v
Bulletin sites are being Truncated
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 Sites running vBulletin 3.0/3.01 allow Thread Previews, which come up as Toolbar Tips, when you hover the mouse over a Thread Title. Typically, these are configured in vB for 300 characters. However, where you will get the full Preview Text if you're using Internet Explorer - if you're using FireFox 0.9, you get a single truncated line (around 86 characters). You can see this for yourself on this site: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=55 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=55 2. Hover your mouse over a few of the Thread Titles (one at a time) in Internet Explorer. Notice how much of the messages you see. 3. Now do the same thing using FireFox Actual Results: You get the Message Preview as a single truncated line. Expected Results: You should see the entire Preview (typically set to 300 characters, which should show you multiple lines of text).
Same issue in Mozilla 1.7.

There are 2 linefeeds in the source of the following example. Mozilla shows them as some black box, continues in the same line with "Any 3.0.2 plans?" and replaces the rest " ;)" with "..." The title is shown on hovering, I tested this by editing it. From the thread 3.0.2??: <td class="alt1Active" id="t107762" title="Fixes in bug tracker starting to mount up again (excludes impex stuff). Any 3.0.2 plans? ;)">
The HTML4 spec (if I'm reading it right) says that, since titles are CDATA, linefeeds should be ignored and carriage returns (and tabs) replaced by single spaces. See: <http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/sgml/dtd.html#coreattrs> - title is of type %Text <http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/sgml/dtd.html#Text> - %Text is "CDATA" <http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/types.html#type-cdata> - what UAs must do with CDATA. So this seems to say that we shouldn't be taking heed of formatting within the title attribute.
this is a duplicate of bug 45375
(In reply to comment #4) > this is a duplicate of bug 45375 probably also duplicate of bug 67127 If newlines worked then it would probably not need trimmed.
Until Bugzilla lets us dupe a bug to two bugs :-) choosing one. No reason for this to sit UNCO when there's a valid dupe. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 45375 ***
