Hi, when I use the new editor, and copy the content (such as if I went back to the previous page to get context on the reply I am typing) then paste the content back in, line breaks are added at random locations.

plus all line breaks I added get removed.

For example when I copy and re-paste the above text it changes to the following:

What is waterfox? How about trying it on a standard browser, IE, Firefox, or Chrome?

  Waterfox is just a 64bit build of Firefox.  It works with the same add-ons (I use HTTPS Everywhere, DownThemAll, FireBug, ColorZilla, etc.

Yeah, I get the same thing with standard Firefox 22.0


Interestingly, I just tried a reply in IE 9 and it didn't truncate the lines - it pasted them full width as it should.

So maybe it is a Firefox "thing"...

I didn't see this on Chrome or Internet Explorer. A lot of this formatting is done by the browser itself, so it's hard to make everyone happy.

I am planning to change some settings end of the week.

My first gripe with this new editor.

If you type out something, and you enter the wrong tags before you post, you get a message warning you that the tags are wrong.

Error: Sorry. Your post does not have the correct open and close tags.


Fair enough.

But when you hit the browser back button. All the text is gone.

This is on firefox
