I went to the settings described "Check Tools > Account Settings > Composition and Addressing and make sure you have "Automatically quote... etc" checked." It is checked but the date & time stamp does not show. There must be a way to click this on including the sent from field, as most other email programs do. Reproducible: Always
You mean that it only says "X wrote: ...."? You can alter this to include time by setting the "mailnews.reply_header_type" pref. Reply the outlook style is not available, see bug 67089. Problem solved?
I looked for the reference given to make the change: "by setting the mailnews.reply_header_type" pref. Reply the outlook style is not available, see bug 67089." I cannot find where to do this.
If all you're looking to do is change the "reply header" aka "attribution line", see: <http://www.holgermetzger.de/efaqmailnews.html#6> To change the preferences, in TB 1.5, go to: Tools | Options | Advanced | General Config Editor When the window pops up, scroll down to the preference or type a string to use to filter the pref names; then change the preference by double-clicking on it. The bug mentioned in comment 1 is for a different style of reply, including the headers with the quoted text. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 171822 ***

Interesting, I did as suggest by going to tools/options/advanced/...but the general config editor does not appear in TB 1.5.
Config Editor is a button in the lower right corner... You can find out more about hidden prefs and using the config editor at http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config
