Just checked, I'm using Thunderbird 24, but I was on 17 or 18 until a
few days ago.
Looking in about:config, then filtering on html, I noticed I have:
  mail.default_html_action = 0

But then:
  mail.html_compose = true
  mail.identity.default.compose_html = true

But then:
  mail.identity.id2.compose_html = false
  (ditto for the other identities)

And then filtering on "text" I have:
  mailnews.display.prefer_plaintext = true

I also notice plain_text.wrap_long_lines = false (which is the default).

Just do Alt-E, W (Edit|Rewrap) to get pasted quotes to change from black
to blue. (I see ctrl-R will also do it.)

(I just tested on this email: I copied the contents to a text editor,
cancelled the reply in thunderbird, went back and replied to you again,
delete everything, paste in from the text editor - at this point
everything is black - then did "Rewrap", and the quoted parts turn blue.)
