A HTML message does not display. The mail arrives with strange results. The inbox item in the folder list displays in bold " Inbox(1) ". I cannot remove the " (1) ". The inbox file lists the contents of the message. It will not display. The code is somehow broken. The addition to user.js came from mozilla's website. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. receive html message 2. 3. Actual Results: Bold " Inbox(1) " and nothing else Expected Results: It depends on what the coder wanted to happen. Either convert the file to text and display it or disregard the message with a message box about not accepting html messages. My guess is the first. I have been unable to get rid of the bold " Inbox(1) ". It is marked critical because it causes a loss of data (the message).
Good Day . . . I sent myself a plain text message to the subject account. The inbox displayed in bold " Inbox(2) ". I clicked on the item and nothing happened. No messages were displayed. I checked the Inbox file and my plain text message is appended. The html message that caused the problem is directly before it. Please advise how I can purge the inbox. This is my main business account. Thank You . . .
Good Day . . . Added info. I tracked down the account control file to inbox.msf. The two missing messages were listed. I renamed the file and started Thunderbird. The two messages appeared under Subject, Sender and Date. Strange though, the html message appeared in html and not text as requested in the user.js file. This is workaround and not a cure but it works4me. I must apologise for something in advance. Effective 24 November 2004 this account will no longer be available. I should have maybe not started this. I will be in a black hole until at least January 2005. I am moving. Anything that I can do over the next two days I will be glad to assist. Thank You . . .

The > mail arrives with strange results. Rather than making a direct change to user.js, delete that line and make your settings via the menu View | Message Body As ISTR that changing that menu actually changes two settings in preferences, so you might have selected a bogus combination by making the change to only that one.
