    Firefox problem with Yahoo Mail

    When I use IE6 with XP I can send rich text: large fonts, smilies etc... in Yahoo Mail these options are not available with Firefox.
    Does anyone knows how to enable rich text format in firefox?

    Firefox doesn't have a mail app. Do you mean webmail formatting? If so, perhaps you need a Java plugin. Maybe Yahoo uses ActiveX?

    It's probably best to write to Yahoo and ask.

    Do you mean webmail formatting? Yes Mail it is Thx.

    looks like this will require some heavy lifting see installing ActiveX in Firefox: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=140828

    That's my only (and very minor) gripe with Firefox. There's a bit of info on the problem here:

    Try the Java Plugin first.

    One of the nicest things about Firefox is that it doesn't have ActiveX.

    I was shut out of Hotmail earlier today because my Lynx browser doesn't do Java worth beans.
