Firefox-HTML mode bug

published Oct 16, 2008 4:12pm
A bug in the current version of Firefox is causing some spaces between words to disappear when the text is saved when editing in html mode. It appears to be especially prevalent when pasting large runs of text into a html mode editing window. This doesn't effect the standard Richtext view, nor Safari or IE. If you need to use Firefox in html mode you'll want to switch back to the classic mode temporarily. It looks like this is fixed in the next version of Firefox (3.1) but that is still in beta and has a number of other more agregious problems that keep it from being a practical alternative at the moment.
