When you choose to add a reply or start a new thread, a new window pops up
(after passport authentication) with a dialogue prompting you to enter your message.

At the top of this is an "add attachment" second which in IEx is initially
hidden, but in Mozilla always displayed.

In IEx, there is also some graphical interface provided to the input dialogue,
which allows changing of fonts etc. I believe it is arranged in a table, but
Mozilla does not even display it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a communites website in both Mozilla and IEx
2. In one of the message board areas, select to make a post and authenitcate
yourself via passport.
3. Compare the two browsers post entry windows.

Actual Results:  Mozilla does not display the page correctly

Expected Results:  Included all page elements
Since this requires a login, could you possibly save the page as "web page,
complete" and attach the resulting files (page and associated resources) as a
zip archive to this bug using ?
Save complete page, 2 screenshots + additional notes

Ok... looking through the source, there's nothing in there that could hide the
file control and nothing that would show the font-changing controls.

I'll try to get a passport account at some point to test for sure, but it looks
like the site is simply serving up different content depending on which browser
accesses it.... (especially since Mozilla's textareas do not allow the
font-modification that the site obviously wants to do on the content of the
textarea, whereas IE's do).

This sounds like a tech evangelism bug to me... rich text editing, very similar
to hotmail issues.
