Also, works fine in OSX 10.7.2 w/chrome. Just in case anyone else does what I did.....If you're quoting somebody (Even if it's just one person), it tags that quote with the multi quote button and everything reappears (including your typed text) when you hit the reply button. If you click on quote again, your saved text does NOT reappear.
