Excel Formatted Table Data in Gmail

When I try to copy and paste a data table in Firefox3 the table is distorted and the colors and table borders are missing.

But in IE7 it displays the table just fine.

Anyone know any setting(s) or addon that will allow  those tables to show like it does in IE?

Do you need to have copy/paste as part of this or do you just want something that looks like Excel in a webpage that works in Firefox, etc?

It is for our company report that is emailed.  The finance person takes the excel file and copy&paste into the mail body.

Thanks,

You need to respond to all expert post before trying to close this as you are. What did the extension I suggest do? Did you try it? It is the addon to use but still may not fix the issue you have. If not then there is no other addon to look at.
If an addon isn't the solution but this is a page you can modify and change then we might look at details of the page to see if there is a way to make it more cross browser friendly. Copying like this is often browser dependent though so there is no guarantee a solution will work for both browsers.
Please respond to the post though and let us know the status before deleting or trying to close as you did. If the answer wasn't "good" then there is no way for you to get a better one if you don't respond. :)

modus_operandi,
I am interested in a response to my comment from the Asker.  The addon I mentioned is the way to add IE functionality to Firefox.  There is a good chance it will help.  If not then there really isn't a setting or addon that will "fix" this since it is a compatibility issue with the code; something designed for IE usually won't work in other browsers. :)
Let me know if  I am mistaken about how the objection works but it seems like you started the close in the same way I objected to.  Of course if the Asker won't respond and you feel this isn't worth keeping then a delete is fine.  It just shouldn't include a refund of the points since the Asker abandoned this.

Posting an objection (again :)).  I believe the first was overlooked when the moderator responded and this will cause it to be noticed (I hope).

It seems like it did work.  Great!  I'm glad I could help.  Thanks for the grade, the points and the fun question.

it is dead.  Worked around it long ago.  I awarded the points to move on.
