TinyMCE problem with ExpressionEngine in Firefox

By /

I just encountered a problem installing the TinyMCE editor on an install of ExpressionEngine – all the files were uploaded correctly and the extension to get it working in ExpressionEngine was uploaded and properly activated, but the editor wouldn't appear in Firefox 2 (other browsers were fine).
