For cases where a received message is opened in the message pane (instead of a new window), provide an option to reply to/forward that message also directly in the message pane (instead of opening a new compose window)

Steps to reproduce:

I open new messages NOT in a new window, BUT in Thunderbird's message pane.
(see for a explanation of the different panes)

Actual results:

When I click REPLY/FORWARD in the message pane, a new compose window opens.

Expected results:

Instead of opening a new window, I also would like to compose my reply/forward message directly in Thunderbird's message pane.

I think that's called Inline Reply and I think we either have a bug for that, or perhaps it exists as an addon.
