Description

17 years ago
I'm using build 2001071004.  I also have the HTML-style quoting disabled by
using these prefs:

pref("mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed", false); // RFC 2646=======
pref("mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support",
true);user_pref("mail.quoteasblock", false);
user_pref("mail.quoted_graphical", false);

When viewing threads in newsgroups message quoting is inconsistant.  Sometimes
all the quotes are together (correctly):

>>>> text
>>> text
Other times the text is right up against the quotes:

>>>>text
>>>text

And other times it differs between levels:

>> >> text
>>> > text

What it should do is show the quotes in a row, with a space before the text, and
then the text:

>>>> text
>>> text
>> text
> text

Of course. You sat your prefs to make Mozilla show you what the sender sent,
directly, without any prettying-up. That's what you see. Not every mailer sends
the same [quote chars].
INVALID.

You guys make it real inviting for people to file bugs...

Tell me this:  How can I get Mozilla to display plain text, with no HTML style
lines, and have everything correctly laid out?  Like plain text does in NS4.
