QuoteText - Firefox issues

edited November 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Anyone here that can confirm that the QuoteText extension isn't working within Firefox? Several users within our forum reported that it doesn't work as designed. As far as I understand it, you first have to highlight the text within the posting and press the "Quote" link afterwards. This should copy a bbcode formatted string to the comment box at the end of the page.

But it doesn't work here. All that is pasted is an empty pair of Quote tags. e.g.

Anyone here who can confirm this? Any solutions?

    I think I ended up choosing Quotation instead. I liked that I could select a section of text and hit the quote link to just get that part. I don't think ajaxquote was able to do that for me.
