Copying a table should try to preserve the original layout of the data, so that any other program (like excel, google spreadsheets, etc) would easily paste it. cell-1-1 \t cell-1-2 \t cell-1-3 \n cell-2-1 \t cell-2-2 \t cell-2-3 \n cell-3-1 \t cell-3-2 \t cell-3-3 \n Reproducible: Always
Hmm, the patch in bug 236546 didn't fix this completely?
