Description Bob Lord 2006-08-24 23:05:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Today, when I type a paragraph of text in the "Description" field of a bug form
and submit it, Bugzilla will add a linefeed at the end of each line rather than
leaving the paragraph alone. 

This behavior has two main downsides:
1. When I use larger fonts, the line-feeds wrap in inappropriate places.  A
string of text will roll over to the next line for a few characters, and then
the inserted line-feed will cause the text to continue on the next line. For

one two three four five six seven eight nine ten 
twelve thirteen fourteen fifeteen

2. When I make my window very wide, the comments do no stretch, though
everything else does.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make the font larger on any bug report where people have inserted paragraphs
of text. 
Actual results:
Odd wrapping.

Expected results:
Normal wrapping.
