Hi,
I have Windows 7 64bit and use pale moon 15.4.1 as my main browser.
When I compose an email in hotmail and paste a link,
it doesn't show as an underlined link, just the link text, so my recipient cannot click on it to go to the link.
It is the same in the opera browser.
If I use IE9 it works.
Anyone had similar?

Are you using the old Hotmail format, not the new Outlook. You may need to make sure it is not set for plain text instead of Rich Text Format.

Hi greebal ,

use the Hyperlink function (blue world with a chain across it).

Hi GuiltySpark,

Many thanks for that.
I don't know why but I don't have to use Insert hyperlink in IE9.
