    i use firefox primarily for my development, i'm on linux.

    please allow posting using firefox on /communities/newsgroups.

    it's quite unprofessional not to support such basic features in browsers
    other than your own.

    I'd say it's more unprofessional to use a web interface to read a
    newsgroup. Use a real newsreader instead, and you'll have no trouble
    posting.

    What did you expect us *users* in Usenet to do about Microsoft's webnews-
    for-dummies interface? No one here can do anything about how Microsoft
    codes their web gateway to Usenet.

    When using a webnews-for-dummies interface, like Microsoft's Communities or
    Google Groups or a forum-to-Usenet proxy, those are gateways to Usenet.
    Despite the appearance of a forum, you are participating in a newsgroup (aka
    Usenet).
