    Eeek, some keystroke(s) changed message window to source code view

    OK, I'm writing along and I evidently hit some key or combination of keys that changed the text view to source code -- with no visible way to change it back to text.Can't find any help either here or in Firefox.

    If the keystrokes (or however I did this) are peculiar to this forum, can anyone tell me...

    how I did this

    Is it a toggle

    and if not, how can I revert to the normal message writing view?

    ================

    And if I hit some Firefox "show source code" combination, perhaps someone who's more familiar with, or more patient with, Firefox can help me find the answer?

    TIA

    If you are talking about "writing along" as in creating a post on this forum, and you had some text selected, a right click followed by an "e" would trigger the "View selection source" function.  I don't know if this is what happened though because it opens up in a new Firefox tab so should not cause confusion about how to return to the forum page.

    After a few decades using Pegasus Mail this is the first time I heard of such "feature", but who knows the keystrokes that make TER tickle... Are we talking about Pegasus Mail or something else? If so, can we infer "source code" is a message RAW view? Please elaborate.
