    No. It could be either of these:

    • "She would no longer be angry with you for giving it to me." (This is rather formally expressed. Colloquially, one would say something like 'She wouldn't be ... any longer.')
    • "She would not long be angry with you for giving it to me." (This is an archaic word order. The norm now would be 'She wouldn't be.... any longer' or 'She wouldn't be....for long')
