When using Firefox I cannot use the smilies, bold, underline, etc., features when posting. Why? Is there an extension that I need to install?

Also, the popup blocker sucks. Is there an extension to help?

Thanks!

If you haven't already do a search for firefox tweaks and you'll find a load of stuff. I found a script that blocks nearly every advertisement on the internet, there are some pages that are so choked with advertisements that all that loads is a couple lines of text, you'll think it's annoying at first but give it some time and it will grow on you.

If you haven't already optomized it for speed you should do it, without the tweaks firefox is incredibly slow, after tweaking, it's actually a little faster than IE.

OK. I checked and this box was already unchecked, so I checked it and things worked. For the heck of it, I unchecked it and things still worked.
