Go in to PROFILE>PERSONAL OPTIONS tab. Then scroll down to EDITOR TYPE and change from HTML to WYSIWYG. That should fix it.

Disadvantage with Firefox is that you can't cut and paste. Could work with IE though, I don't know.

Lounger, that did work however you are right that I have lost any ability to cut / copy & paste.

I did get a window from FF that seemed to have a fairly complex way to change FF pref's and get around this.

Or, maybe I will download that new Google browser and check it out. A lot of my nerdy / techy friends really like it

Thanks

Thanks, Lounger.  Mea culpa for forgetting the procedure.

If the forum software is working on Firefox, the huge toolbar should have past icons for text (T) and Word (W).  They're left of the binocular icon.  It's a bit of a nuisance to use these for cut & paste, but not a big nuisance.

I'm guessing it's a FF thing. Cause I use IE and never have that problem.
Not sure though, i'm no techie.

Don't mean to thread jack you, but since we're on a formating issues topic, I've got one of my own...

does not matter if I type it in a WP program and C&P or just type it directly into the reply box ....... I type it with paragraphs and it posts as one looooonnnnggggg one! (just like this one will) Using Mozilla FF (browser) and Comcast (ISP)



How do you get the "originally posted by: Author"

Do you guys just type that in?

 

 

You can "Ctrl C" to copy and "Ctrl V" to paste (testing above)

Wait .... suddenly I have a "Quick Reply" box below the last posting in a thread.

It is allowing me to have paragraphs

and

"Aints no more......WELL DONE!!!!!! This has been a long time coming...." ..... C&P

Ok ... I am even more confused now

Copy and cut & paste can be done with the clipboard icons on the toolbar.  I tried the Firefox instructions for allowing cut & paste and didn't succeed.
