I use the firefox extension "it's all text" and edit all my gmail

basic html or the <edit> option doesn't show up.

And how did you configure "it's all text" to use emacs?
I spent some time a while ago and it didn't work for me.

Tools -> Add ons -> It's All Text -> Preferences

Add the path to emacs (or emacsclient, if you have emacs running
all the time) in the editor field.
