Firewatir and textarea


Hello group,

Anyone experiencing problems using firewatir and trying to fill a
textarea? I have no problems doing it with watir. What I do is set the
textarea with text such as “Hello,\r\nThank you for blablabla\r

What happens is that it totally fails to find the submit button, or
puts in wierd messages in the textarea, which I do not even know where
they came from. If I send a single line of text, it works fine. It
breaks with “\n” just as it does with “\r\n”.

Again, this works perfectly fine with watir. I am running this on a
windows 2003 box.

Any help appreciated.
