In vsn 6.0.2 how can I paste a link into the body of a Yahoo e-mail and have the pasted result appear as a link?
o/s Windows XP Home vsn of Firefox 6.0.2
Step 1) open firefox Step 2) copy link from address bar into clipboard Step 3) compose message in Yahoo Step 4) paste contents of clipboard into body of the e-mail
result: the pasted value does NOT become a hyperlink
<on same pc, with same contents in clipboard>
Step 5) open IE Step 6) compose message in Yahoo Step 7) paste contents of clipboard into body of the e-mail
result: the pasted value becomes a hyperlink ... the fact that the link becomes a hyperlink in the IE browser makes me think that there may be something in the Firefox browser that is controlling whether the pasted value becomes a link.
I'm not sure, but I believe the update to firefox 6.0.2 was with the past few days.
I'm not sure, but I do not believe the symptoms from steps 1 - 4 were present a few days ago
Questions: 1) could this feature have been introduced in 6.0.2? 2) I would prefer it if the pasted value would become a hyperlink when working in firefox; what steps do I need to take to make this happen?
