I need step by step instructions on how to insert a hyperlink into an emai in Firefox 23.0 for Windows 7 Premium Home?l

Posted

I've used Firefox for years, and in the past, any URL I included in an email was automatically transformed into a "clickable" hyperlink. Now, nothing happens, it is just text, does not have the underline and the text does not change color or font. I NEED to include hyperlinks into my personal email messages, so, how do I get back to the "old" method of default hyperlinks. I am a reasonably proficient computer user, and follow step-by-step instructions well. Thanks in advance for your advice.bold text

Chosen solution

There is usually a button bar with buttons to format text like Bold and Italic just above the text area where you compose and edit the message text.
That toolbar may also have a button to turn a text link into a clickable hyperlink (look for a chain like button).
You can select the link text and click that button to turn the link into a clickable hyperlink.
If you can't find the button then hover them all to check the tooltip of each (e.g. Insert hyperlink).
