I have configured Gmail to use "Plain Text" when composing emails, this works as it should when I'm in Gmail. However when clicking a mailto link on a web-page it always opens the "Rich formatting" editor.

Does anyone know how to make it stop doing that?

  • Can you add more of a description of what you are trying to achieve. Adding the why as wel would help use find an alternative solution if there is one. – MrHinsh - Martin Hinshelwood Aug 16 '10 at 22:25
  • @MrHinsh - I want it to open the mail composer in Plain Text mode, not Rich formatting. Now I have to click "Plain Text" then a popup asks me if I really want to do that since I will loose some formatting. (Silly question as there is no text at all) – Nifle Aug 17 '10 at 16:55

When you switch to Plain Text composition the choice sticks until you either log out or clear your cookies.
