User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0
Build ID: 20130201185534

Steps to reproduce:

Thunderbird crashed and left a bunch of messages on the console. I cut and pasted it into a file, but nothing gets copied into the crash reporter when pasting into the input area.

% /usr/lib/thunderbird/crashreporter --version
GNOME crashreporter 1.0


Actual results:

nothing gets pasted into the crash reporter, whether I use ctrl-v or middle mouse click. I can paste into anything else, so the clipboard has the data.


Expected results:

the contents of the clipboard should have been copied into the type-in area for the crash reporter. Instead, nothing appears, and I'm not about to attempt to re-type all those messages!

I was going through old reports to triage them and this isn't fixed yet! Flagging it as valid and it needs to be fixed soon, this is a pretty big oversight on our part.

This is a super-silly issue. We have a limitation on what you can paste into the crash reporter client. It's 500 chars which are far too low if one wants to add a piece of log or something along the lines. Let's lift it.
