Except for format=flowed messages, you can turn this behavior off by changing this preference: user_pref("mail.quoted_graphical", false); See http://www.holgermetzger.de/efaqmailnews.html#4 > When [a] line is broken due to length, this graphical bar gets interrupted. This sounds like a message that was composed by a client that doesn't implement format=flowed. If the line has been wrapped in the message source and yet not prepended with the '>', there is no way to tell that it is a quote. See bug 168420 for information about f=f, including the informative FAQ attached to that bug.
