Description (last modified by )
When copy pasting text which includes an external link a zero width character is introduced in the text.
For example when copying from page WikiFormatting the lines in the "Links" row of the table (more specifically, the first sub-line) the Unicode character
\u200b is introduced between the text in the first column and the text in the second.
This caused problems in Firefox 26.0 (Firefox 25.0 was working), when the link was:
git clone ssh://user@host/project and my guess is that it can cause unnecessary frustration (not that I am aware of the problem, I can escape the links, but I did not know that previously and, even worse, it used to work).
Personally, if the only reason for the zero-width character is the icon, I would be perfectly fine without the icon.
