User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140715214327

Steps to reproduce:

1. Compose a new email.
2. Type in 500+ words of text.
3. Randomly make 50+ words both bold and red.



Actual results:

Step 3 is quite arduous while writing and changing colours as you go, it is broken down as follows:

1. Type in the text.
2. Select the words to make bold and change colour.
3. Type Control+B to bold the words.
4. Click the black/white colour icon.
5. Click the Last-picked colour button.
6. Click OK.
7. Repeat from step 2.


Expected results:

Changing text colours should work as follows:

1. Select the words to make bold and change colour.
2. Type Control+B to bold the words.
3. Click the black/white colour icon.
4. Click the red colour selection.
5. Click OK.

At this point, a new icon should appear that is "apply previous style." Then, I can do the following:

1. Select the text.
2. Click "Apply Previous Style" icon (to apply both the bold and the red colour).

Much simpler. Alternatively:

1. Select the text.
2. Control+B to bold.
3. Click the black/white colour icon.
4. Click red.
5. Click Apply. (This requires a new button in the dialog.)
6. The dialog remains open, but is not modal.

At this point I can simply click "Apply" after selecting and bolding individual words that should be in red.

Note: I cannot select all the words at one time because I don't know what all the words will be while composing the email.
