Fix for Firefox and Hotmail Users with Editing Issues...

Just diagnosed a problem for somebody, figured I'd post it here: If you use Firefox to access your Hotmail account and have recently become unable to edit e-mail messages (whether forwarded, replied, whatever) - try loading your Hotmail account up in Internet Explorer and resetting the text editor to "Plain Text" (Tools->"Rich Text Editor ON/OFF" - you want it to say OFF).

Apparently Firefox doesn't support Rich Text editing, and Hotmail disables this option in tools for Firefox users; however, if it gets changed somehow (using Internet Explorer, for example), it's possible for it to get stuck on this option, which results in Firefox being unable to edit your Hotmail messages (as it doesn't support the editor).

That's my current theory, anyways.
