Description Renato Fernandes Cantão 2006-05-06 14:41:36 UTC
Articles with more than 46 lines edited in Firefox (1.0.7 or 1.5.*) cannot be
previewed. Both preview and textarea are cleared (back button restores
textarea). Any attempt to save results in the same behavior. Creating the
sections first and editing them separatelly works fine, though.

With Konqueror I can enter about 3 times more lines (around 130 lines).

The question is, is that a feature of the textarea, of the browsers, or do I
need to set something different on Apache / PHP?

My specs: reverse proxy with Apache 2.0.55 both in the frontend and in the
backend, PHP 4.4.2.

Yes, of course... I just thought it could be some dumb obvious misconfiguration
that I was unable to spot on bugzilla. I will double check my configurations
(PHP, Apache, Proxy, Wiki). If the problem remains, I will provide you a login
and more information.

Thanks a lot for your attention!

Ok, it seems to be a bug from Apache 2.0.55, which happens to be the version I'm
using on both frontend and backend servers. I'll upgrade them soon to see if it
solves the issue.

Thanks again!
