1. I paste a quote into my post (usually using plain text). I click on it, and then click the quote (") button, and nothing happens. I click the " button again, and it properly formats it as a quote (indented, italics).
The first time this happened, I thought it was just me, doing something strange or not clicking when I thought I did, or something. The second through tenth time, I thought it was as well. It isn't just me. It doesn't happen every time, but it happens most of the time.
I'm using Firefox 18.0.1. I just updated, it was happening on earlier versions, too. It's been happening for quite a while.
2. I frequently quote both poems and (especially) Scripture. I paste it in (plain text). I don't want each verse of Scripture, or each line of the poem, to be a separate paragraph. So I use shift-return to format it, and then, since it is a quote, I hit the quote button. Beautiful, single-spaced poetry or Scripture in quote format.
A few months back, when I hit the quote button (and it worked, see #1 above), I started getting a different behaviour. Instead of formatting the quote, it collapsed the line I was on with the next line (removing the single-space line feed/CR) without putting it in quote format at all. If I then clicked the quote button again, it would quote format it -- but I'd have to reformat the poetry by using shift-return again.
So basically, I now have to remember to put a poem in quote format before formatting it as a poem. If I forget, then putting it in quotes destroys all my poetry formatting, and I have to re-format it.
Again, I can live with this by simply remembering to do it in that order, but it IS annoying when I forget, and it didn't work this way previously.
I could go back to using IE if it's a Firefox issue, but my kids make fun of me when I use IE. Horrible, isn't it? :)
