New Bug: Notes 'hangs' the browser when trying to save a note that....

"Notes 'hangs' the browser when trying to save a note that contains a 'word' of length 27 or greater"

The following will hang/crash your browser:

1. Adding a note to a task
2. The note contains a 'word' (number of characters in a row without a space) that is greater than 27 in length

e.g. "thiswillmostcertainlyhangyourbrowser"
e.g. "this-will-also-hang-your-browser"

In actual fact, the browser is not crashing but processing what appears to be quite a huge amount of information, this seems to grow exponential with each character above 27. 'Words' below 27 are still effected by this bug, but the wait time is deemed acceptable.

A common 'word' that will trigger this bug is a url.

I forgot to mention:

The note despite the hang up, can be saved, this means everytime you attempt to load the Notes tab for that task, your browser will hang again as it attempts to load the note.
