[RCD] Firefox line break issue

I'm not sure that is it. I think that CSS attribute tells Mozilla to  
wrap long text within a <pre> block, as opposed to letting it run off  
the right edge of the text box. The problem I'm having is text that  
doesn't preserve line breaks on copy and paste.

It may very well be a Firefox quirk, since it doesn't happen in other  
browsers. I would love a workaround, or at least an explanation of  
the problem.
