That's to be expected. A URL covering several lines _can_ be copied (selected) when the line wrap is "uninterrupted". It will even work for double- or triple-click (select word, select line) with the normal edit buffer (left swipe to select, in Firefox middle click or mousewheel press to go to URL). As the '+' character will be part of the wrapped URL (which can span several lines), the URL will be wrong, as you've seen. > i've googled for days. zero. im finally asking the top list > on the web. can anybody clue me in? i'm using linux/gnome/mutt. > but it shouldnt make any difference. [?!] If I remember correctly, there's a way to disable the line break emphasizer ('+' character) in the display. Have you tried set markers=no in your ~/.muttrc? Or was it unset markers Something with "markers"... I'm not fully sure if this is the setting you're searching for, but go ahead and try it. -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
