    Hello --

    When I paste highlighted/copied messages found in Google Groups searches
    into a text file, the Carriage Return and Line Feed characters are lost, so
    the message gets pasted as one long stream of text.

    This does not happen in IE 6 or NS 7.1.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a setting to change in FF 0.9.3 to correct
    this problem?

    Thanks for any help.

    the ultimate standard. If you want me, e.g, to be able to decipher,
    munge it so I can. I'd avoid ""...they must have found
    this trick:) I use "scratchthis" or similar somewhere after the @.
