I attempted to reproduce this, but I've run into bug 277187. Yanush -- does the problem happen when editing the preference from the Account Setting's Composition page (for the account's default identity), or only if you go into the Manage Identities dialog?
Summary: placing a signature below my reply won't work → Changing signature-placement preference won't save

Hmmm... well, i kind of missed the "composition & addressing" account dialog, cause it worx from there (thanks!). The only place it didn't work is the "manage identities" dialog.
Do you have multiple identities or just the one? If multiple, were the changes that weren't being saved being made to the default identity or one of the others?
i have 4 email accounts and only 1 identity per account. only changing it from the main "account settings" dialog works. a weird thing is when using the manage itentities button, it would only save the change if it was made from "below my reply" to "below my quote" (and not vise versa).
Created attachment 177145 [details] [diff] [review] [fixed on the branch and the trunk] patch I'm not sure this patch works well...
I can confirm this bug. I have one account and two identities. The "and place my signature" dropdown when choosing it from the "Manage Identities" area does not seem to retain it's selection. There does not seem to be a workaround for those having a single account but using multiple identities. (In reply to comment #4) > Do you have multiple identities or just the one?

OK, I've confirmed this: if you change either of the two dropdowns specifying quote/sig placement *for the default (or only) identity* via the Manage Identities button, those changes do not persist. It seems all the other changes made for the default identity in Manage Identites percolate up to the parallel pages in Account Settings, as soon as Manage Identities is closed. I do not see this problem when making a change to secondary identity.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
I am experiencing this bug too, Thunderbird 1.5 beta 2
I can confirm this with version 1.5 (20051201). At mine, the only thing which isn't updated, is the signature placement of the second identity.
This is the quickfix for this bug (and this might help the dev. team to fix the code): Open the prefs.js file in any text editor (I used notepad) and search this string : user_pref("mail.identity.id1.sig_bottom", true); ATTENTION!!! The "id" number will vary if you use more than one identity. Change the value to false. Issue is fixed!
Hmm i dont seem to have the string in my prefs.js file. I actually dont have any strings other than a remark about not changing things in this file while the browser is open :) Maybe i got the wrong file ? I found my file in the "Mozilla Thunderbird\defaults\profile" folder.
if you're using 1.5, you can use the config editor, tools | options | advanced | config editor. Otherwise, prefs.js is in your user profile directory, on windows, c:\documents and settings\<user name>\application data\thunderbird\profiles\<profile>

cool enough .. it worked ... but know if i reply a message and change the signature it dosent remove the old signature ?!?!?! But it works better than before .. :|

I'm still having this problem. Thunderbird version 184.108.40.206 (20070728) Windows 2000
I have this problem too. Versie 220.127.116.11 (20070728) nl on WinXP SP2. Changing the settings for all identities works if I have not selected the default value (below the quoted text) and want to change to default. If currently the setting is putting the signature below it is impossible to change this via the UI.
This issue persists. Thunderbird version 18.104.22.168 (20071031) Mac OS X Version 10.4.11, Build 8S2167
