Details

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.4 (20070604)

I wish to set "Verdana" (or other) font as the composition font.  When I do this in Preferences, it works fine until I select bulleted or numbered lists.  Then the font switches to "Variable Width".  

This behavior has been around for many versions.  Maybe I am not understanding something, but what I thought I was trying to do was straightforward.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Thunderbird.. Preferences.. Composition.. General.. HTML.. Font (popup).. Verdana.

2. Compose a new message.  

3. Type some text.  

4. Press return to get to a new line.  

5. Select the bulleted text icon.  Font changes to "Variable Width".

6. Return to Thunderbird.. Preferences.. Composition.. General.. HTML.. and see that the selected font has reverted to Variable Width.
Actual Results:  
Bulleted text appears in the "Variable Width" font instead of the chosen composition font.

The composition default font in Preferences switches back to Variable Width.  

Expected Results:  
Selecting the composition font in Preferences should render all the text I enter in the composition window in my selected font.
