I did not realize that I had been running an older version, as I am using the http://mozilla.debian.net/ backports repository. Upon investigation, I see that Thunderbird jumped from 17.0.x (ESR) to 24.0 last year, without official releases with the intermediate version numbers. ;| Thanks for pointing that out! I just installed the latest release (24.4.0) into /usr/local and am using it now. I do not look forward to updating it separately, but I feel that I should use the latest release in order to properly evaluate it. > 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) I think that all but the last setting establishes the defaults, while the last setting is what is configured with: * Edit | Account Settings... * (account) | Composition & Addressing * Compose messages in HTML format: No My settings are the same. > And then filtering on "text" I have: > mailnews.display.prefer_plaintext = true I just changed this setting and notice no difference. > I also notice plain_text.wrap_long_lines = false (which is the default). This setting was not available in the older version. I have tried toggling it but notice no difference (perhaps due to my other settings). While sending test emails, however, I noticed the following: Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed It caught my eye because I saw it in one of Kalin's links to bug reports: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=168420 I had not been aware of "format=flowed"! I read about it in the bug report and found more information here: http://joeclark.org/ffaq.html This is the cause of my line wrapping issues! With my configuration, my lines *are* being wrapped, but, with the above content-type, the lines are "unwrapped" when viewed. While I see that such behavior could be desired by some people, I really dislike it myself. Filtering for "flow", I found the following settings: * mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support - Setting this to true causes Thunderbird to not "unwrap" lines when viewing messages. * mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed - Setting this to false removes "format=flowed" from the content-type of send messages, so that other email clients are not instructed to "unwrap" the lines. This fixes my first issue! Thank you very much to Kalin and Darren!!! >> In Thunderbird, however, there is a special "quote" state, indicated >> by text color. ... > > Just do Alt-E, W (Edit|Rewrap) to get pasted quotes to change from black > to blue.

Thank you for testing that out; it is a good workaround for when there are not many blocks of quotes to fix. In the above "format=flowed" bug report, I noticed that there was also talk of this issue, and it seems that it is caused by the "format=flowed" implementation! With "format=flowed" disabled using the settings above, I just tried again, and I no longer have that problem! Thanks again! Cheers, Travis ----  https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases/Old/2013
