Pasting Wrapped URLs

Here is an excellent firefox trip via Jeremy who got it via Andrei.

you copy a URL wrapped over multiple lines from somewhere and try to paste it into the address bar, you will end up only with the first line of it. To fix it, go to about:config and change editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines setting to 3 or add:
user_pref("editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines", 3);
to your user.js file. Now all the line breaks will be removed upon pasting.

Setting that value to 2 converts the newlines into spaces. Extremly useful.


Spending most of the time watching TV today, I have observed that

1) Cine-choreographers are the most creative people in the world and their creativity invariably revolves around the actresses navel.

2) KBC-2 in Tamil, running on Vijay TV is a must watch comedy. Nizhalkal Ravi trying to emulate Big-B and the dubbing sound-track is real fun. Don't miss it.
