Firefox: Unable to add container to text without container

Reported by: rostr Owned by: jf.hovinne
Priority: major Milestone: 0.5
Component: editor Version: trunk
Keywords: container Cc:


Firefox 2.0:

Here's the closest I can get to reproducing it:

  • Paste some text directly into the editor. Sometimes it will break it up directly into paragraphs, sometimes it wont. Often, some of it will be correctly in containers and a small part will not. (Example, try cutting and pasting the text in the following article into an editor:  http://www.naw.org/Content/ContentGroups/News2/After_the_flood.htm

You will see that the Sources section at the bottom doesn't copy correctly...i.e. has no container)

  • Eventually you will get some text that does not appear in a container.
  • Now try to put this text into a container. The only way i've been able to do it is go to the end of the text, hit enter to get a new <p> and then copy the text without container into the new <p>. Sometimes this doesn't work.

Problem: I have not been able to figure out how to get a container around text that has none without cutting and pasting again into an existing one.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

You can't catch the FF clipboard before it's pasted into the editor.

The only way to fix this is to use the Paste from Word feature.
