    Is there a setting or button that clears quoted text that I was planning on replying to, but changed my mind or chose not to? Not sure if it makes sense, but hear me out.
    I plan on replying to someone and use the quote feature. It gets pasted at the bottom in the reply box in light gray, I type out my response afterwards, but chose not to actually hit the submit button. I come back to the thread and the quoted portion and previous response that I did not submit is still showing there, even after I've deleted it.

    I just click below it and then use the backspace key to remove it?

    I do the same, but just seems like there should be a better solution. Even after I close the browser, the quoted text is still there.

    Click the button in the toolbar that looks like a floppy disk to the right of the camera and hit "delete draft".

    Hey, when you have a huge amount of data like 1MB or so, you need to grab the big boy.
