Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-08 22:26:01 UTC
Hallo!

screen dump will follow

Please follow the instructions from the screen dump.

part 1: "copy"
go to
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?oldid=10440#copy_and_paste_5
copy the text marked in the screen dump

part 2: "paste"
go to
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Special:Userlogin
paste your clipboard and compare the result with the one from the screen dump;
also remember what you have copied
you do not need to sign in; it is very hard to generate that user name but you
can ask me for the password

*note* This does not happen to me in IE. This means (probably) that it is not a
problem related to my operating system (Windows XP SP 2). 

*note* I you use IE you may use #copy_and_paste_6 which works properly there,
you may delete the header "user:aaa" and the trailer "bbb" and you may see that
you need only the password to log in.

If you can confirm this bug please specify your operating system and browser.
Thanks in advance!

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Copy-and-paste behavior of text boxes is way, way outside our control.

Thanks Brion! I know. Searching some help at irc://irc.mozilla.org/BiDi and
keeping a note at http://landfill.bugzilla.org/bugzilla-tip/show_bug.cgi?id=3230
until this Firefox bug is identified.
