I don't see much here on Mozilla.
Please tell me you know how to make a simple
stationery letterhead from importing an HTML
file or a Word file. Also where is the Template
file that I have saved my attempts thus far to, but
cannot find - nor can I find out how to edit
my Profile file or where i can open it....
ie., I am getting sick of that and about to ditch
the whole deal.
Help me soon!
