Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130910160258

Steps to reproduce:

Typed a letter in Microsoft Word, then copied and pasted it into an email in Gmail.


Actual results:

The paragraphs became double spaced.  Where there is a single line between paragraphs it adds another one.


Expected results:

The layout of the text should have been the same as in the original.

This problem does not happen when using Word with Gmail via Internet Explorer.

I can reproduce this bug on Mac, specifically that the paragraphs themselves are single spaced, but there is an extra space added between paragraphs.  On Mac, I get the same result in both Firefox and Safari. I created the document in Microsoft Word for Mac.

Pasting into the Mail returns the same double spaced effect as pasting into the browser.  INVALID?
