User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: version 1.0.2 (20041206)

whenever Thunderbird encounters two hyphens (--) on a line by themselves, the 
remaining text is grayed out. When reading mail from my mailing list, this 
happens frequently and I will have to read most of the remaining message 
grayed out. Once a message shows that has included text in its reply, the 
display becomes normal again.

Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
allow user to turn off the option for graying out text after the --

This isn't really a preferences bug, but there isn't really a better category to 
put it in.

Given the UE impact I'm going to stipulate that this is more bug then enhancement (not many people have a 10+ line signature), so that either someone can pick it up, morph it, close it, etc.  I would think this is also a problem with some top posted messages and not just a problem with messages from mailing lists.  (didn't look for dupes)

there is considerable recent discussion in bug 54570 - don't know if it's significant.
