User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/184.108.40.206 Build Identifier: Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 (20060719) Forwarding a message always is (HTML)-formatted as <pre> even if preference "editor.quotesPreformatted" is set to "false" (which is normally said to produce a simple "<span>"-formatting). So there are no line breaks any more within paragraphs - resulting in long lines. I think the "reply" prefs are not taken into account but are set to (output from "grep -r "reply" *" in ".thunderbird") prefs.js:user_pref("mail.identity.id1.reply_to", ""); prefs.js:user_pref("mail.identity.id2.reply_to", ""); prefs.js:user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_originalmessage", ""); prefs.js:user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_type", 0); whereas my (changed) "quot" prefs are: prefs.js:user_pref("mail.identity.id1.auto_quote", false); prefs.js:user_pref("mailnews.quotingPrefs.version", 1); The "flowed" prefs are all default. Are there other prefs involved? Maybe the "quot" ones should be used also in forwarding? The problem only appeared in latest TB 18.104.22.168 version, I think, at least only lately. Remark. Around the time when the problem first occured I had a crash locking the profile which I could only restore by creating a new one and copying all files from the former to the new one and then deleting the old one per "thunderbird --profilemanager". But I think that doesn't relate. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. (See prefs above.) 2. 3. Actual Results: Haven't tried to reproduce it on other machines or accounts (profiles).
xref bug 249093 -- I describe this symptom at that bug, but maybe this should be broken out as a separate one.
I've decided not to maintain the two symptoms separately. Incidentally, I don't think editor.quotesPreformatted is used at all. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 249093 ***
