Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.18) Gecko/20110628 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.18
Build ID: 20110628231248

Steps to reproduce:

Use certain smiley codes in plain text email that are supported by widely used instant messengers, email clients and social sites such as Facebook:
  - laughing :D   (already supported :-D )
  - embarrassed :[   (already supported :-[ )
  - undecided :\ :S :-S :s :-s   (already supported :-\ )
  - tongue :P :p ;P ;p   (already supported :-P :-p ;-P ;-p )
  - surprise :O :-O :o :-o   (already supported =-O =-o )
  - kiss :*   (already supported :-* )
  - cool 8) 8| 8-|   (already supported 8-) )
  - money :$   (already supported :-$ )
  - foot :!   (already supported :-! )
  - sealed :X :x   (already supported :-X :-x )


Actual results:

The available smiley icons were not used (only for the already existing support).


Expected results:

The available smileys should appear.

Extending simley code support will increase user satisfaction reading and writing emails in Thunderbird because the end user can use a wider and more consistent range of already know smiley codes also used by other applications.
