How can I add a new node to an existing area in the iD editor?

I've tried every combination of mouse and cntl, shift, alt etc. There must be a way!

Can you say what OSM editor (i.e. is it the default one that you get from selecting "edit" from, what browser and what OS you're using?

I'm using Firefox, the iD editor and Windows 7.

Assuming that you simply want to add a new node to the area/polygon outline: select the outline, pull one of the intermediate "handle" icons (in the middle between two proper nodes), move the node that you just created to the intended place.
