From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010120 BuildID: own build of 0.7 sources in plain text mode you can't indent with space(s). If you use tab it looks alright but for the receiver result is totally messy. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.set compose mail in plain text in preferences 2.try to indent with space to consecutive lines. 3.indent with tab.send mail 4.look the result in the other end (in in SENT folder) Actual Results: 1-2 sencond line autoindented in a way not wanted (more than on space) 3-4 line breaks are lost. Expected Results: 1-2 no auto indent 3-4 line break are greated when auto wraping both problems are really result of auto wraping not adding line breaks. Adding line breaks IMHO should be default behaviour. Well you have invented nice way to avoid bug reports. You have made it so tedious that most people will say: what the heck I'll use netscape instead. I think your policy is not to the best advantage of your project. Certainly it's very anoying and although I can see your logic there it gives kind of unpleasant impression of your guys.
Reporter, I have just tried to reproduce this with build 2001020820 (Mozilla0.8), and I could not reproduce the bug. Typing white spaces works correctly. Tabbing once brings the caret only two characters further, but once I type a character the tab is corrected. I believe there is already a bug filed on that. Could you please try again with Mozilla 0.8 (latest nightly)? Thank you a lot for your help. On a side note : This bug system has proven to work well for Mozilla. If people want to use Netscape, we have no problem with that (after all they are our allies), and personally I think it is really not so hard to use. It simply makes sure that our developers get the needed information in order to fix the bugs. Reassigning to email@example.com
I don't understand the problem described in the bug report, so I can't suggest who should own it if there is indeed a bug. What auto-indent are you expecting and where, and what do line breaks have to do with inserting spaces?
is this bug #58712?
this works fine in the 2/21/01 build, the lines are preserved and the indents all remain and are rendered correctly. marking wfm -- Sujay, can youplease double check on your linux machine?
marking verified..REOPEN if problem still persists...provide reproducible steps/testcase
