The first time you tried to cut and paste multiple lines into a text box in your browser, you were probably frustrated when you found that only the first line actually got pasted. Then, you went back to copy/paste one line at a time.

This is especially painful when you have an address that looks like this:

350 5th Ave
New York, NY 10118

but what you really need is something like this:

350 5th Ave, New York, NY 10118

If you are using Firefox, you can make a simple change to your configuration so that multiple lines paste as single lines. Essentially, the line breaks are converted to spaces.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Type “about:config” in the address bar of your Firefox browser and hit the enter or return key.
  2. In the filter box, type “single”, this should bring up the “editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines” preference.
  3. Double click on the editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines preference and change the value to “2”.
  4. Paste at will.
