How do you forward a Firefox webpage in e-mail?

more options

How do you forward a Firefox webpage in e-mail? You can do it very easily in all versions of I.E. - Just click "File" and "Send." Why can't we do it in Firefox?

Chosen solution

Firefox has a feature to send a link to the current page (e.g., on the File menu > Email Link), but not it's actual content. You would need to copy/paste to do that.

Why?? I don't know why. Maybe there is an add-on for that.

The Email Link feature works with stand-alone email programs, or with Gmail, but for other webmail sites, a lot of setup is involved (if it's possible). The reason for this is that not all sites offer a way to accept the page title and URL in the format Firefox sends it to them.
