I tried settings 0,1,2,3 and they all cause a reply at the bottom. Also, Netscape 7.1 and 7.2 expose this option in Preferences, Mail & Newsgroups, Compostion, so you don't have to go into about:config. I would ask that this be entered as a request for a future UI enhancement Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open about:config 2. set mailnews.reply_on_top to 0, 1, 2, or 3 as desired 3. restart mozilla 4. reply to a message 5. observe results Actual Results: Changing the setting has no effect. Replies are always at the bottom. (I know some people like this, but not me.) Expected Results: Should respond as follows 0=bottom, 1=top, 2=select+bottom, 3=select+top
This preference is still available, however: it is assigned on a per-identity basis. The UI exposes the preference for the account's primary identity, in Edit | Account Settings | <account> | Composition & Addressing
