Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Let’s assume you defined “Trebuchet” as your default font-family 2. Create a new (HTML) mail 3. Enter a paragraph with normal text 4. Enter a table 5. Enter another paragraph with normal text 6. Enter a bulleted list 7. Enter another paragraph with normal text 8. Enter a numbered list 9. Enter another paragraph with normal text 10. Send the mail and watch it with different mail-clients Actual Results: 1. Thunderbird: the mail looks very much the same as it was sent 2. Other mail-clients (Outlook, GMX Webmail, ...): the paragraphs with normal text look all right. But the text in the tables and the bulleted/numbered lists have a different font style and sometimes a different font-size, I guess it's "Times New Roman". Expected Results: The defaults (font-style, font-size) a user defines in the settings should apply to the whole mail, not only to paragraphs. They should espescially apply to tables and lists. A clever solution would be a CSS-section within the <head> tag of the mail. I analyzed the HTML-code produced by three different mail-clients: 1. GMX Webmail adds some CSS-statements to the <head> section. The <font-family> tag for example is part of the <body> definition. GMX mails look handsome, a unique font-style and font-size throughout the whole mail. And from the technical point of view, the CSS approach is very elaborate (in my humble opinion). 2. Outlook adds <font> tags to every single line. The result is handsome though, but it's a disaster from the technical point of view. 3. Thunderbird produces clean HTML-code but avoids the CSS approach. Puts a <font> tag to paragraphs only but neither to tables nor to lists. The result is (as I mentioned above) a mail that is displayed with different font-styles even though the sender did not touch the font-style-buttons.
Bug 481141 is about tb 3.0b2. Christof could you add screenshot describing the issue, thank you.
Created attachment 365153 [details] Mail with text paragraph, bulleted list and table. The behaviour between TB2 and TB3 is slightly different. -> With TB2 the sender does not see any font-style difference between the paragraphs. It is only the receiver who gets an "ugly" mail. -> With TB3 the sender can see the font changing as soon as he clicks the bulleted list button or inserts a table
