Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.create message wih only "--" on a line in the message and send it, read w/ff - text following the line "--"will be faded out 2.edit the message in the inbox file and add an additional "-" to the line 3.now when read, all of message text is same intensity Actual Results: indicates ff is using the "--" as a command to change font Expected Results: ff is set up to display only plain text, it is clearly not doing this. I have tried every possible configuration and cannot remove this behavior.
dash dash space (that is, "-- ") is the convention for marking a signature; what you are seeing is by design. One related bug is bug 54570, about the signature detection algorithm handling some cases poorly.
