I have just upgraded from Mozilla 1.6 to 1.7.2, both on Linux Red Hat 8.

which I posted relating to the TO header now missing when printing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Forward message inline using either Forward button or either inline forward

Actual Results:

HEADER is missing from the headers that appear in the in-line forwarded message.
 (To, From, and Subject are present)

Expected Results:  
The headers should have included the date header.
