User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 SeaMonkey/2.26 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140415200419

Steps to reproduce:

I set mail.show_headers = 2 because I want to easily see more/all headers on recieved messages.


Actual results:

When forwarding other mails, the forwarded mail now also has the full header.


Expected results:

It doesn't make any sense to have these both things combined in one setting. If I want to see full headers it does not mean that I want to forward every message with a full header and vice versa.

I think the view should not automatically effect how your messages will be forwarded. Forwarding with simple heades and the option "forward with full header" should just be fine.

Yes, apparently nobody got around yet to provide a solid proposal and a respective patch for it.  :-\
