Setting preferences for plain text font to variable width font is a workaround for the second problem but not the first. This was not a problem in 1.5 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: view message source select a few lines of text Actual Results: highlight does not cover selected text Expected Results: highlight should cover selected text This font width problem is absent on my Windows XP machine with the same version number of Thunderbird.
Don't see it on linux either, so I'm thinking this is mac only.
Summary: fixed font width miscalculations - select highlights wrong text and wrap falls off edge → view message source fixed font width miscalculations - select highlights wrong text and wrap falls off edge
I am not able to reproduce this in Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 (20071031) on Mac OS X 10.4.11.
Marking WFM based on comment #1 and comment #2.
