They modify to "pipes" (the '|' character) or to quote bars, which are drawn as 
one continuous line from top to bottom of the quoted text?

If the latter, see 
  http://www.holgermetzger.de/efaqmailnews.html#4
If your complaint is specifically for the display of format=flowed messages, 
mark this as a dupe of bug 88986.  Otherwise, setting the preference
 mail.quoted_graphical  to False should fix your problem; in which case, mark 
the bug:   Resolved | Invalid


If the former, run Thunderbird in Safe Mode (which disabled Enigmail) and see if 
you get the same results.  If not, file a bug with Enigmail and mark this bug:
  Resolved | Invalid

Its not an display bug. Its an bug in sending the message.

 mail.quoted_graphical is allready set to false.

How can I run Thunderbird in SafeMode.

If I start it with 
thunderbird.exe -SafeMode
, I cant see a window. If I change to Thunderbird via Monkey-Grib, than I
see that Enigmail is runnig. I see the pipe bug, and I will ask for my
GPG-Passwort.

It might be case sensitive -- try    thunderbird.exe -safemode
If that doesn't work, then I'm stumped.

If I start thunderbird via 
thunderbird.exe -safemode
then it starts correctly to its windows. But Enigmail are not disabled.
I will ask for my GPG-Passwort.
And I see that the bigger-than signs will modify to pipes.

This bug is fixed. It was a bug in enigmail 0.89 . A update to 0.90 was the
solution.
