Big gaps in text when posting

I've had this issue for quite some time now. What happens is, when I write some text in a new post which has one-line gaps between paragraphs, after I hit submit it will display as two-line gap (or perhaps more).

So the result is a post with unnecessarily big gaps between paragraphs. I can go into edit post later and correct it to one-line spaces, and then after submitting it will be fine.

It's not a big deal, just slightly annoying, I'm just curious if anybody else has observed this and if perhaps it's fixable.

I'm using latest Firefox on Win10.

EDIT: it has happened here now, as you can see there is a 3-line gap between 1st and 2nd paragraph, and then 2-line gaps in the subsequent ones.

This isn't new and has been signaled long ago, to no avail.
To avoid this, click on "A" icon on top-right edge of edit window to switch editor mode to normal (non-wysiwig) mode. You can then use "preview post" button to see what it has done to your text, then remove those annoying lines.

Thanks, good to know it's not only me and that it's a known issue.

I usually deal with it when I remember to preview the post, you can edit the gaps then, but sometimes forget and it does look silly...

It‘s a Windows problem. Never happens with BSD, Linux, AmigaOS, MorphOS, …
