Writing in textarea feels like juggling in a suit of armor.

The sluggishness of the textarea in Firefox is killing me. Have you gotten Mozex or "It's all Text" to work with OS x?

I am using the latest version of Firefox with os x 10.4.10.

For the life of me I can't get Mozex (which launches an external editor) working. If you are running OS X and have any decent textarea plugin working could you share your settings with me?

I also tried "It's all Text" and even set up a script as they suggested. The script invokes Textwrangler, but IAT won't invoke the script.

Mozex won't even work with Nano in /usr/bin

arrrgghhh.

Any other firefox/editor integration tips are most welcome.

I have It's All Text working in OS X. I'm writing this in Emacs.

For the sake of science, though, I've changed my config to use
/usr/bin/edit

which is the TextWrangler shell command, and so now I'm editing this in TW. What suggested script are you using? Do you lack /usr/bin/edit?

(I think the reason for /usr/bin/nano not working is that it needs to run in a terminal, but is not capable of bootstrapping itself into one).

Hot dog. It worked! I owe you! I just spent 3.5 hours working on this. I wrote this in TextWrangler. /usr/bin/edit was counterintuitive, but it worked!!!!

I am so happy! PM me at misterlanguage@gmail.com

Thanks!!!
