Created attachment 8355903 [details] Corvettes.htm User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 SeaMonkey/2.23 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20131210201646 Steps to reproduce: My whole Web site relies on URLs that are relative, not absolute. I'm cutting and pasting text containing these relatie hyperlinks all the time. Actual results: The hyperlinks are converted from relative hyperlinks to absolute file:/// hyperlinks every time I cut and paste them. Every. Single. Time. For example (file attached): The very first hyperlink, on the world "antisubmarine", is the relative location ../../S/u/Submarines.htm If I cut and paste this text, the hyperlink is converted in the pasted text to the absolute location file:///home/kgbudge/html/pwencycl/S/u/Submarines.htm So when I upload the page to my Web site, it's all wrong. (Relative locations are the same on my Web site as on my personal computer, which is *the whole point* of using relative locations.) This can't possibly be considered the right behavior. The link location should remain relative when it is pasted. Expected results: They should remain relative hyperlinks, not be converted to absolute hyperlinks. When I cut text containing the relative link ../../S/u/Submarines.htm and paste it somewhere, it should be pasted as ../../S/u/Submarines.htm and not converted to file:///home/kgbudge/html/pwencycl/S/u/Submarines.htm
