For Firefox, the logic for setting preferences is not intuitive to me 
and the defaults are horrible. It downloads to the desktop by default 
and I had to hunt for where the desired preference was located.

I use Seamonkey/mozilla for editing in Windows as well as with Linux. It 
does the basics, (links, tables, background and text colors and such). 
Dire or not, it is functional and presentable for a variety of purposes 
and if viewable as the same content with IE or other browsers.

There is no stand-alone HTML editor that I know for standalone mozilla 
excerpted applications.
