Mint-8 X64 OpenOffice Hang On HTML Paste

Postby lannatwin on Wed Dec 16, 2009 8:53 am

Just did a fresh install of Mint-8 X64. Was using Mint-7 X64.

Now, when copying html from Firefox and pasting into an OpenOffice document, OO hangs. This happens about 80% of the time. The screen goes gray, and I must force OO to close.

Anyone else experiencing this, or have any suggestion for a resolution? Thank you.

Sounds odd - you write
copying html from Firefox

Are you copying the page source or a normal page?
If you copy the source there may be some html editing component that goes mad

Just copying packing list info from a PayPal web page and pasting into a document. Something I did all the time in Mint 7 without issues. This sucks. Looks like I am going to have to revert to Mint 7 because this is something I need to do regularly. :(
