    When inserting smileys using the toolbar, I get the error "Please enter a message with no more than 5 images.".

    When directly entering smileys like :) , :( etc. no such error occurs.

    I am using Firefox 3.5.6

    Aha, the problem is that the toolbar commands insert [IMG] tags for smileys, instead of proper character sequences. I can see it by switching to the BB Code editor.

    When switching from the BB Code editor back to the Rich Text editor, these [IMG] tags get converted into proper character sequences.

    So if you get hit by this problem, first click on the [​IMG] button to switch to the BB Code editor, then click on the Use Rich Text Editor link below the text field.

    Because the toolbar inserts the smilies as images while typing them insert them as text. But we definitely need more than 5 smilies in a single post :p
