toolbar spaces highlight

I was browsing the web and searched using the toolbar for something with this context:

"your keywords" -"other"

Suddenly the whole website's spaces all disappeared and I had sentences like "Yourrankingingoogleissobadthatyouhavetopaymoneytogoogleforhits." I turned off the highlighting of the suspicious text, and it didn't fix it until I reloaded the page. It appears that whenever you exclude something, and have highlighting on, it deletes all the spaces in the page. Anyone else seen an error like that? Any plans on fixing such a weird and annoying problem? I almost thought it was a trojan at first, but found it was the toolbar. I'll have to dub this problem as the "toolbar trojan" or something cuz until you turn highlighting off, all the spaces are removed on every page visit.

One more addition. If your search query is simply a dash (-) then the highlight tool will remove all the spaces in the websites you visit.

Whoa, you're right. That's one weird bug.
