It results in very long lines in preformatted blocks, which use this symbol as line delimeter. It works well in other browsers, e.g. in IE 8, as well as in Firefox versions prior to 4.0. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a page containing symbols
as line delimeter in a <pre> block. Actual Results: All lines are displayed in one line without separation. Expected Results: Each symbol
should be replaced by a new line.

Duplicate of bug: 565035
1. I do not agree with such workaround. I am a user of some web service, not a WEB developer of it. And I would like this bug be fixed in order I could see the page as expected. 2. The bug 565035 is about another thing: treatment \r as a white space symbol, not as a line separator in <pre> blocks.
(In reply to comment #3) > 1. I do not agree with such workaround. Nothing someone needs to agree with, just a fact and worth to note for others running into this issue. Fixes also the same problem in Safari and Google Chrome. > I would like this bug be fixed Yes, nobody indicated this big as INVALID or WONTFIX. > 2. The bug 565035 is about another thing No, it's not. (When Henry reported it in May 2010 maybe the impact wasn't clear to him until he saw Bug 650643)
Thanks, now I see. For me, I disabled HTML5.parser to return to the old behavior.

Eventually, I have reset HTML5.parser setting, after our organization has changed the internal bug tracker to another product. So, now this issue does not bother me any more. Thanks for the support.
