#218 closed Bug (wontfix)

Word-formatted text fails to paste with Firefox for Mac

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: FCKeditor 2.6
Component: Plugin : Paste from Word Version: FCKeditor 2.4
Keywords: Confirmed Firefox Mac CantFix Cc: ann.adamcik@…, kei.comer@…

Description

Have tried to copy & paste from Word into FCKeditor numerous times using the toolbar button for "paste from Word" (and resulting popup window). All bold, italicized, and underlined text loses any/all of those attributes under Firefox 2.0.0.2 (current) for OS X. Problem does not occur with same browser version for Windows.

Steps to reproduce: Create a file in Word 2004 for Mac (v11.3, current) with text that has underlining, bold, and/or italicized text (or combinations thereof). Copy text, move to Firefox and try to paste with Word toolbar button in FCKeditor. A Demo file is attached. In addition, all paragraph indents are lost as well.

Working with Firefox 2.0.0.2 for OS X on a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.4.8 installed, and Word 2004 for Mac v11.3.

This is a limitation of Firefox on OSX. We can't do much to solve this, as pasting operations are controlled by the host application (Firefox).

We need to fill a nice report at Mozilla's Bugzilla for it. I'm targeting it for version 2.6.
