Not quite so here. I'm using FF 3.5.4+RC 0.3.1 and tinymce just follows 
the context. I.E. new message-double, forward+reply-if the original is 
html then double, otherwise single(even if I switch to html editing).
You may noticed this behavior if you compose a new message using html
editor (double), switch to plain text and then back to html (single).
I guess the reason is that there is no way to reconstruct paragraphs
so why bother with P tag.
I dont have any problems with copy/paste of html content either.

Are you using vanilla installation?
