When I enter tabs they are converted to 4 spaces.
When I press F8 to reformat the page, a single indent unit is 2 spaces

Also, highlighting text and pressing (SHIFT+)Tab deletes it. It would be preferable to have the text indent or outdent.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Tab-indent text, or press F8 on any code
Actual Results:  
Newly-inserted tabs are converted to 4 spaces.
F8-reformatted XUL is created with multiple sets of 2-spaces
Selected text is deleted

Expected Results:  
Tabs remain as tabs
Any selected-text is block-indented
