This bug is so damn annoying. Using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; 0.8.1) Netscape6/6.5b0 2001032904 To recreate: Open up a new composer, type in "some text", select that text and press link, hyperlink that text to some url i.e. http://www.mozilla.org. When you start typing again, the next set of characters are still hyperlinked even if you do a carriage return. Expected results: After selecting text to be hyperlinked, next set of characters i.e. a space, a carriage return, some text, should not be hyperlinked and should be plain text Right now the workaround is to type a complete thought or paragraph and go back and do the hyperlinking later. Lame. Also, I believe this is a problem in Mail/Compose.
actually, there is a menu item to do just what you want Format|Discontinue Link (Shift+Ctrl+L). Also, after inserting the link, you could try hitting the 'END' key which will get you out of the link as well.

Summary: Hyperlinked text keeps property with new text → [RFE]Hyperlinked text keeps property with new text
Oh and the feature request is to make the expected results specified as the default action. A user shouldn't have to go to the Format menu to break the style (and they won't know to do that, I would have never figured that one out). Also, this bug is especially annoying when creating a list i.e.: stuff1 stuff2 stuff3 and hyperlinking along the way (not afterwards).
so, what is the expected behavior? You can't base it on entering a space or character, so, what are you expecting to have happen?
Severity: normal → enhancement
Priority: -- → P5
Target Milestone: --- → Future
Expected behavior is: as I'm typing and I go and hyperlink the last word I typed, the next character (after the hyperlink dialog) should not be part of that hyperlink whether that's a space bar or a new character like a period. Also, when I hit the enter or return key, I should be able to start a new non-hyperlinked line. steps to reproduce expected behavior: 1. Start composer 2. Type Google 3. Highlight Google with cursor 4. Hit hyperlink button 5. Hyperlink to http://www.google.com 6. Press Ok 7. Next character should not be hyperlinked (whether it's a space, a character or a carriage return).
