User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 (20040208) There is no UI for adjusting the various reply_header options, so users are stuck with "%s wrote" unless know how to work with users.js. Even then, there is no documentation for the options. I was able to find them by searching the source code in LXR. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Be asked by a user how to add the date to the reply header 2. Scratch head 3. Look at all Thunderbird options 2 or 3 times 4. Search google in vain 5. wonder... 6. Search LXR (for "wrote") and discover "mailnews.reply_header_xxxx" options 7. Play with your own users.js file 8. Decide you can't support this for your users 9. Give user from #1 the disappointing news Actual Results: I changed my own reply header but couldn't help the user I was trying to help. Expected Results: Under Options->Composition or Account Settings->Composition and Addressing there should be a way at least to pick a setting from the predefined options for mailnews.reply_header_type, and perhaps an "advanced button" for tweaking all the reply_header options (i.e., most users don't need to redefine mailnews.reply_header_colon).
The duplicate has a pretty incomprehensible name, so it's no surprise you didn't find it -- assuming you looked. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 171822 ***
