This bug is 7 years old. And as on date except the Quickquote extension there’s no way one can “Quote just the selected portion of the message during Reply”. Wonder why this is taking so long to be fixed ?
On the health side, I’ve been down with flu and of course the fever (keeping a steady 102 degrees for one day) a treatment with Ferrum Phos in the early stages managed to keep things under control. Either way, it might turn out (as the saying goes) to last 7 days without medicines or a week with them.
