Under Wayland, Firefox copies multi-line text with Windows-style newlines

Starting Firefox under a Wayland compositor (sway, in my case) with MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 and copying some multi-line text results in newlines of the form \r\n, i.e. Windows-style, instead of the expected \n. Starting Firefox with the X11 backed, i.e. without MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1, doesn't exhibit the issue.

This is most certainly a bug since Wayland is a Unix-like protocol, and as such newlines should be of the form \n. However I am finding the bug tracker a little daunting and I am not sure how to check whether it is already known or not.
