Copy / Paste of HTML Form in a "Text only" message

Bug #361078 reported by wywid on 2009-04-14
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gtkhtml3.14 (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

If you "copy" a portion of HTML page containing a form in firefox and if you paste it in a "text only" message, evolution will show the fields in the message (fields are not text only !)

You can't delete the fields in the messages (see my screenshot, which show an attempt to delete the field)...

Yes, it is reproducible.

I've tested it specificaly it in evolution 2.26

1. Open a new "text only" message (not html one), and type anything in the body of the mail.
2. Go to , then copy the form in this page
3. Paste it in the top of the body of the mail... You will see the input field over your message.

Don't hesitate if you want more precisions.
