MT Text formatting buttons in Mozilla

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 17 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

Blogzilla has a ready-made template that will enable the IE-specfic buttons in Movable Type, based on code from Kurcula. Very nice. I’ve taken the technique and added it to the bookmarklet entry template as well. Backup your MT 2.63 bm_entry.tpml from MTPath/tmpl/cms/edit_entry.tmpl and replace it with this copy: bm_entry.tpml.

Very sweet. Installed it and it works nice. Thank you much. :)

Will it still work in IE though?

Yes. MT does some browser-sniffing and only shows the changes you are using Mozilla.

Doh..was about to ask why it didn't work, then realised I only have MT 2.51..

Yay, I have formatting buttons again!

Excerpt: Mozilla Firebird can now use the "IE-only" text formatting buttons in Movable Type's "New Entry" screen, thanks to a small hack.

Is there a hack for MT 3.x sites for this? The edit_entry.tmpl file doesn't appear to be the same for this version, and I don't want to completely munge the whole thing.
