I see a blank white box to type in. Then when I click in it to start typing, it changes to a faded yellow with some white in it (sort of three bands). There's a black Menu button up in the right-hand corner of the Create Thread screen, but no way to put in smilies or use formatting tools. Is this me and my new Firefox, or Tom and his "under the hood" activities? If the latter, i won't worry about any of this.
