Fix for Firefox adding blank line in posts

Firefox has recently began adding extra blank lines between paragraphs on some users machines.
If you are experiencing this issue, here's the fix:
Open a new tab
In the URL type about:config
Agree that you will be careful
Copy and paste
editor.use_div_for_default_newlines
Into search
when entry appears is should indicate default boolean true
Double click to toggle to false
Close about:config
That's it!

No problem Paul Black. I commented on this on another thread in which I queried the issue and members stated it was FF only. A little googling and presto, solution! Always willing to provide assistance, and hopefully resolutions!
