Which cause me a great deal of eye strain and I even get that with web mail if I stay at it too long. I checked the archives today and saw that my replies are threading nicely and found one that isn't line wraping at 72. Not sure what's causing that but I don't think it's on everything. All the replies I read with my comments show it is line wraping correctly.  Thanks for the offer.  Now, to google for "firefox-bin hogging all my cpu". Funny, as I was typing the last sentence and moving the cursor to edit some of my mistypes something started up 2 additional instances of firefox my home page but wi

View|Layout|Wide View will give you a full width view of the msg below
your message listings. That's actually larger than you get with your web
interface. You can then adjust the msg fonts to your liking. And also
adjust the amount of real estate shown above the msg using the mouse;
just move the bar above the msg up & down. I'm happy to help you set it
up off-list tomorrow as your continued posts as above with 800
characters (157 words) in a single line is just damn annoying, and is
akin to someone posting in html.

Note: ATT/Yahoo webmail _used_ to have an option to set the line width
to 72 or 80 characters. But it seems that they've done away with it with
their 'new & improved' interface.
