Hi!  I'm a FireFox user, and the Welcome frame editor is killing me 

I'm not sure why this frame has different Editing characteristics compared to a Free HTML/ Text frame, but the Edit frame in general is uber borked.

So here's what happens when I Edit the Welcome frame:

Everything seems to be here... wait a minute!  How do I save?    Where are the Save and Cancel Buttons?

I'll show you... they're buried underneath the Editing field!

See them in the lower right corner?  How can I click on these when they're buried underneath my HTML code?

Work-around: Use Ctrl+F5 to force the window to refresh.  This will cause the Editing field to shrink, making the Save and Cancel buttons just barely available.  However, switching to HTML resizes the Edit field, causing it to once-again cover those precious buttons.

*Note: I tried using IE as well.  My main goal was to edit some of my IMG SRC references to add some new GIFs to the frame.  IE is even worse!  Sure, you can get to the Save and Cancel buttons with ease, but copying & pasting image URLs in the HTML mode, then switching back to WYSIWYG mode caused the frame to butcher the URLs to something almost unrecognizable.  I had to re-create my PayPal URL because of it   To edit the HTML directly, I have to Edit in FireFox and Copy & Save in IE 

I can't be the only one seeing this issue with the editor...

Edit: AFAIK I am using the latest FireFox version:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4

Download IE and edit it that way.  I just started having this bug yesterday.

I tried this today after FireFox self-updated to v2.0.0.5.  The Save button's still stuck underneath the other stuff

I gave up on using firefox as an editor. Now use IE for editing my site.Same prob. Missing save button, or in the html screen it wont let me click on it.
Shame really its been good for so long using FF.

SHIFT + TAB will scroll through the different options. Keep pressing SHIFT+TAB and eventually you will get to the save and cancel buttons. (They will have a dotted line around the words when selected).

Once you're on the button you want, hit enter on your keyboard.
