Newlines (\n) in description of meeting requests from Outlook are ignored
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20071008 Firefox/126.96.36.199 Build Identifier: Lightning 0.7 When I receive meeting requests from Outlook (vcalendar format) where the description contains newlines (\n) these are ignored by Lightning. All I see is one long line for the description. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open meeting request from Outlook containing \n in the description Actual Results: The description is shown as one line of text. Expected Results: The description should contain multiple lines as indicated by the \n strings.
I can confirm this and I was already working on a patch, but it seems this bug derives from the way the HTML formatter works, that is, quite poorly (for instance, HTTP links are shown as plain text). If it's OK, I could take this bug together with bug 387863, which is on a similar issue and involving the same component.
I'm not sure what the rules are for merging bugs, but bug 387863 is about not displaying the END TIME which is quite a different issue. If you can fix it with one patch, that's great though.
This bug is similar to Bug 265971.
Definitely a duplicate of bug 265971, which I'm working on already. Anyone to dup this?
