Description caspar-gentoo-bugs 2004-07-01 05:57:29 UTC

I'd like to disable HTML-editing within mozilla.

There is an option for the ./configure script provided with the mozilla sources:
                          Allow only plaintext editing

It shouldn't be a big issue to provide a new local USE flag, let's say moznohtmledit, to make this option available on ebuild level.

It would be very nice.

Reproducible: Always

patch for ebuild

I don't know which other files to change so I didn't do so.

I did a test build of 1.7.6 with --enable-plaintext-editor-only.  It's impossible to enter text in the compose window at all.  I don't think this is a feature that's maintained upstream.

What about the USE flag "mozplaintext" for mozilla and thunderbird?  If it's the same I suggest to remove it...
