I copy&paste the text with several URLs inside to compose window. Then delete several of copied URLs. Then sent mail. Resulting sent mail contains the some of deleted URLs. 

If message was sent in text format, you can see deleted URLs directly in message body. Some of them wrapped in <> brackets.

If message sent in html format, the message at first look is Ok. But Message Source option shows the presense of deleted URLs in message HTML source. They looks like <a href="url"></a>, whithout any text between <a> tags, and hence don't visible in normal view.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy several URLs in compose window
2. Delete some of them
3. Send this message in either Text or HTML format. If sent as HTML, make sure to check message source.
Actual Results:  
Sent message contains some of deleted URLs. Sent message doesn't match the content of composing window while composing.

Expected Results:  
Send exactly that you supposed to send.

Seems that the problem occurs while composing HTML mails only ( copied URLs are instantly clickable in composing window )
Have you tried safe mode? (see https://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode for more information)
