Well, I finally got around to some Mozilla bugs and/or annoyances that have been bothering me yesterday. One of them has been around for a while and involves copying source code from the Page Source window. I've noticed that whenever you select the code (usually with CTRL-A, etc.) and paste it into a text editor, there are a bunch of random blank lines thrown in that aren't in the actual source code. If you open up the same source in IE the lines aren't there. It's not really a major bug by any stretch of the imagination, but an annoying one nonetheless.

Then there's the other bug, which is a little more annoying. I've noticed that whenever you're using Mozilla in a non-maximized state, choosing Page Source from the View menu opens the Page Source window in a maximized state. If you use CTRL-N to open a new window, it obeys your current setting and opens the new window with the same dimensions. When you view source, though, this is not the case. Yet again, this isn't a blocker by any means, but I'd have to say it's a little more annoying than the bug mentioned above...just because it interferes with the control you have over your desktop.
