AOL Mail Font Size
When I use AOL mail in Firefox, the font size switches between 10, 11, and 12 without my changing anything. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? It works fine in other browsers. Also, is there a way in Firefox to make copied and pasted URLs automatically format as hyperlinks?

Do you mean the font size changes as you are typing a message, reply, or forward?
A user reported this problem on a different mail site, that sometimes after pressing Enter, the next paragraph would use a larger font size. I don't think we discovered the reason for that at the time, but the workaround was to use Shift+Enter to create a line break instead of pressing Enter. (This adds a line break into the current paragraph instead of starting a new paragraph.)
Regarding hyperlinks, some mail sites detect and "linkify" them automatically, either in real time or if you save the message as a draft or when you send them. If AOL's site does not have that feature for Firefox users, then unfortunately you will need to use a button to insert the URL as a clickable link. I don't use AOL, but the way this works on other sites is that there is an icon which typically looks like 2 links of a chain, you click that, paste the URL, then click Insert or OK to insert the link into the message.
