Steps to reproduce:

While writing a message I highlighted a piece of text, then clicked on Format --> Text Style --> Italic to italicize it. I then wanted to change part of it back to normal text, so I highlighted that part and clicked on format --> Text Style --> Italic to toggle it back to normal text style. (I am running Thunderbird on a Windows 10 desktop machine. When I click on "About Thunderbird", the release number that appears is 38.5.1, and it says "Thunderbird is up to date.")

Actual results:

The highlighted portion of the text remained in Italic.  

Expected results:

The highlighted portion of the text should have toggled back from Italic to normal text. That is what happens when i go through the same process with "Bold" or "Underline" text styles, for example.
