Prevent Paragraph Double Spacing When Responding to Forum Posts in Firefox

It's infuriating that the default setting for Firefox is to double space paragraphs when you are responding to posts in forums.  Here is the fix...

Type about:config in the address bar.  You will be shown a warning letting you know that you can really screw up your browser messing around with these settings.

Type editor.use in the search bar and you will see a setting for "editor.use_div_for_default_newlines"

Change the setting to false, and your responses in forums will no longer be double spaced.
