Default Linkgrabber IE8 copy+paste bug

Linkgrabber will only grab garbled and/or incomplete links from IE8. I found this to be reproducable:

- open any page with multiple links in IE8 (e.g. tinydl.com)
- mark multiple links and press ctrl-c or right-click->copy
- jd comes to front, but linkgrabber only shows some of the copied links
- open notepad, press ctrl-v, then ctrl-a, then ctrl-c
- open jd, clear linkgrabber list then press "Add Links..."
- linkgrabber shows all links correctly.

PS: No problem with firefox. I'm guessing IE is messing around with control-chars somehow.

I do not use IE for anything, but I do use FeedReader which sadly uses an integrated IE window.

possible solution: use a tstringlist or tmemo to filter out the superfluent stuff:

//pseudocode on
filter:=tstringlist.create;
filter.readfromclipboard;
output:=filter;
filter.destroy;
//pseudocode off

I don't know, if this works in Linux, but the win32api should remove all but the visible text. It's not elegant, but wth?

DAMN, wrong board. Could some mod please move this? sorry

I think IE requires that lines end in CR-LF, but all internet tools should also allow just LF or just CR.

This bug is already in the Bug Tracker.

If you use a regular file editor, it replaces the line endings as it loads the text.

The developers know about the problem and will fix it eventually. For now, after you copy from IE, past into Notepad and then copy the Notepad text. JD knows not to double list links.

Why are you using IE? Concerned supporters want to know (I am not trying to force you to change).

No one on the team noticed this problem because none of us use IE as our primary browser.
