Description Chris Spencer 2006-06-25 17:21:28 EDT
The textarea used for entering bug comments uses the wrap="hard" attribute. This
causes extra carriage returns to be submitted in the bug comment, resulting in
lines appearing broken and much harder to read.

We should use wrap="soft" instead. This will still allow wrapping within the
textarea, but will not submit those temporary carriage returns in the comment,
leaving the user's browser to properly layout the text in conjunction with their
monitor resolution.

I know this bug is old and I don't know if it's just me but since the (August 08) update to the latest version of Bugzilla I've started noticing this problem a lot - did something change?

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With
the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in
the new code. Updating bug version to 3.4.
Comment 4 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 17:42:14 EDT
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.
