    I read somewhere long back on your forums, that one of guys replied that by hitting Alt + Space or something else which will bring an additional bar of formatting in the text editor.

    Could you tell me which are those keyboard buttons? I tried but couldn’t get it work.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    I have just installed Firefox 2.0, the latest version. My problem is that I can no longer add color to my text or any of the other choices in the additional bar.
    ALT+B opens my bookmarks dropdown menu. And ALT+V drops down the view menu. Has anyone else had this problem since switching? Because I think it may be linked to it. Actually I have fiddled with trying ALT+ with all keys, and no go. Help please.
    I’m not well versed at HTML at all.
    *Sigh :(

    Thank so much timethief. :) I am no HTML wiz, by a long shot but I apprieciate your help anyways.

    I just opened up my blog in (yikes)IE 7 and ALT+V brings down the bottom half of the rich text editor options. I must of been right in assuming Firefox 2.0 had something to do with it. Is it ever going to be compatible with wordpress.com’s rich text editor?? Good God I hope so, I hate the thought of using IE. lol But at least for now I have a work around.

    Thanks again

    firefox 1.0.5.8 has issues http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=5206&replies=10
    and I can’t be bothered with the text rich editor issues. I shut it off on all my blogs and I use the regular editor along with BlogDesk – it works for me! :)

    It’s Alt-V or Alt-Shift-V (if Alt-V brings down the view toolbar menu)

    Thanks timethief for you time and efforts. :)
    And engtech you saved me from having to blog in IE. You have made my day! In Firefox 2.0 I need to use the ALT+Shift+V shortcut.

    Why is firefox 2.0 doing that default thingy with the alt things?

    I cannot use any of the wordpress alt shortcuts without including the shift as part of the shortcut.

    Is there any way to override that?
