Keybinding hell

With the arrival of spellchecker on the trunk, MailNews composition has become well and truly unusable. Every time I want to delete a line (which happens a lot when I'm writing a news post or mail), I get that stupid dialog popping up.

Maybe I should look for and resurrect that patch that would let me use the editor of my choice to compose the mails (and for textareas for that matter; reviewing large patches would benefit wonderfully from me being able to do it in an editor that 1) doesn't crash if my browser does and 2) has auto-save for that one time in 5 years when it crashes).
