Awaiting feedback Error parsing links in quotes

It seems to be an IE9 issue. I've checked it with Firefox 10 and the problem doesn't exist there.

1) First of all, FF adds a new-line after the quoted passage, so that your cursor is not next to the link+[/quote].

2) Secondly, even if I bring the cursor up to link+[/quote] and press Enter, it doesn't convert that into a URL.

I am getting this issue also
BTW, I am getting this with v 1.4.2

Have tested with all addons disabled, still get the problem. I have now raised a ticket

Everything looks fine if check the edit box for the post, but not when you view page source, part of the closing tag is appended:

Code:
"http://howarth.uk.com/wo/manuals/2014saxmouthpiece2ndhand.htm[/QUOTE"

We would need steps to make it happen. Seeing it after the fact could just be down to something the user did specifically (or a specific browser behavior that can't be disabled, which IE does have in this case)

It seems what is happening is a URL like this:

Code:
[URL]http://example.com[/URL]
gets quoted and becomes this:

Code:
[URL='http://example.com[/QUOTE']http://example.com[/URL]
So if I edit the quote in the reply to take out
Code:
[/QUOTE
So it becomes

Code:
[URL='http://example.com']http://example.com[/URL]
Then save it, all seems to be good again. In fact in the quote whjen I look at again without rich text it shows correctly as

Code:
[URL]http://example.com[/URL]
So my question now is, would it be safe to do a find and replace all instances of

Code:
[/QUOTE']
and replace with

Code:
']
??

Thanks. So am I right in thinking there is no legitimate instance of
Code:
[/QUOTE']
I'd be worried that if there was I might break something.

Is there a reason why when you just paste a URL in, some would be

Code:
[URL]http://example.com[/URL]
and others are like this

Code:
[URL='http://example.com']http://example.com[/URL]
