Double Spacing Between Paragraphs in Posts???

This happens periodically with Firefox users here, for me it only happens sporadically when I do a Firefox reinstall or there's a major Firefox update, and it just struck me again recently. It's annoying and I don't understand why the solution is buried where most users would never find it, or dare try the edit. If this post ever disappears, I'll be lost...thanks again target2019!

- go to about:config
- search for editor.use_div_for_default_newlines
- double-click the line to change it to false
Everything above is typed on a line, with enter key pressed at the end.

I've had this problem 'forever'. Taking the extra lines in 'preview post' works, but it's a pita. I've changed the setting.

Let's see if it worked. I made the change, closed and re-opened Firefox, hit quick reply and typed this with one space above.

EDIT: And worked! Thanks.

Of course, it isn't easy to find that option (pet peeve).
In the same thread, TromboneAl included screenshots to implement another fix. Shorthand below.
User Control Panel > Miscellaneous Options > Standard Editor

That might work in each browser, too.

I use Firefox and noticed the same thing. I had assumed it was just a quirk of the forum and usually edited to fix.
