Now (after upgrading to 1.5b) it seems to ignore that field and the greater than sign is now being shown as both "| >" when the message source only has ">". This is a problem because I have diffs emailed to me and, as you may know, diff uses '>' char to show where lines were inserted. At first, this may seem like a trivial problem, but consider that I have to read diffs for my job, and Mozilla Mail is modifying the content of my email against my wishes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put an email in your inbox with '>' char(s) at the beginning of some lines. 2. Pull up the about:config page and changed mail.quoted_graphical from true to false. 3. Load the email in question. 4. Observe what happens to the '>' characters. Actual Results: > becomes | > Expected Results: > should be left unchanged example email: The text diff is also shown below: ******************************** <<< file 1: /vob/sgm/src/com/cisco/mwg/sgm/client/events/configEditor/ECServerProxy.java@@/main/3 >>> file 2: /vob/sgm/src/com/cisco/mwg/sgm/client/events/configEditor/ECServerProxy.java ******************************** -----[after 10 inserted 11]----- > import com.cisco.mwg.sgm.commonUI.DialogUtils; -----[deleted 107-109 after 107]----- < Set interestedMessages = new HashSet(); < interestedMessages.add(new Integer(ObserverMessage.KEEPALIVE)); < -----[111 changed to 109-110]----- < interestedMessages, _svrRspHandler, true, --- > ObserverMessage.BASIC_MESSAGES, _svrRspHandler, > true, // give me updates now
Summary: mail.quoted_graphical → mail.quoted_graphical regression
Unable to duplicate this symptom with this morning's build: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20030923
I removed all traces of Mozilla and my profile and installed last night's build and this seems to be working now. It must've been related to the overlay install of 1.5b on top of 1.4. I'm now running: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20030924

Rats. Now it's doing it again. I don't know what changed. I may have changed a couple of preferences that are conflicting...? I'll try to get more details.

I think I found out something. I was using the Walnut 1.5 theme and that triggers this bug. Using Classic or Modern works fine. I don't know if this is a bug in Mozilla that is triggered by this theme or if this is bug in the them. What's the next step for this bug? Maybe sspitzer knows.
Contact the Walnut developers and have them check into this.
I don't have the answer to your problem, but I would like to make a remark: this theme contains syndrome of a similar bug 76126. The syndrome is that even if I specify variable-width font for plain-text emails, fixed-width is nevertheless used. So, it seems that this theme doesn't respect all Preferences.
