Closed Bug 536857 Opened 11 years ago Closed 11 years ago
It's possible to insert more than one line into a single line input field but only last line is shown
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20091215 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla 5.0 (X11; Linux armv7l; en-US; rv:1.9.2b6pre) Gecko/20091225 - Firefox/3.6b6pre Fennec/1.0b6pre Only the last line is shown if you insert a multi line string into a single line input field. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a plain text editor and enter: line1 line2 (line1 RETURN line2) 2. Mark the text in both lines and copy it 3. Paste the copied text into a single line input field (like the search field on en.wikipedia.org) using fennec. Actual Results: "line2" is shown. Move the cursor to the begin of the line and than press one more time the left arrow: "line1" is shown. Press right arrow: line2 is shown. Expected Results: Like in firefox on desktop the line feed sign should be ignored and both lines should appear in the single line: line1 line2
This is controlled by the editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines pref. Valid values are: 66 const long eNewlinesPasteIntact = 0; 67 const long eNewlinesPasteToFirst = 1; 68 const long eNewlinesReplaceWithSpaces = 2; 69 const long eNewlinesStrip = 3; 70 const long eNewlinesReplaceWithCommas = 4; 71 const long eNewlinesStripSurroundingWhitespace = 5; Firefox uses "1" for Linux (paste only the first non-empty line), and "2" otherwise (paste everything, replacing newlines with spaces). Not sure why Linux is different - I think we probably want "2" across the board?
