Hello, thanks for your attention. I am using Windows 10. Recently started using Mozilla browser and e-mail client. Have not been able to remove Microsoft Edge. I have removed Microsoft Mail and Microsoft Internet Explorer. My documents are in Google drive. Opening a document from my local hard disk Google Drive; by default does so in Microsoft Edge. I want it to open in Thunderbird instead. Opening a GoogleDrive document from the cloudserver through Thunderbird; is done as I want it.

Why am I getting a lot of "A" with a "^" sign over it in the quoted text when forwarding a message

On most messages I receive, if I try to forward to someone else.........or sometimes even on a reply to original sender, there will be lots of the letter "A" with the symbol "^" over the A mixed in the forwarded text. It looks like this is happening in the place of a space on most lines of text. On occasion, there are also very strange characters mixed in the forwarded text, but they will all be IN BOLD.

an image from my computer appears in the banner at the top of every email created using one particular email account

My wife has 2 accounts set up in Thunderbird. When she creates an mail from one of the those accounts, an photo that we have previously taken and stored somewhere on her computer (always the same image) is added to the top right-hand side of the address banner of every email she either creates or forwards on. It is very frustrating as we can't see how it has been added. It only happens on one of her accounts.

It isn't a signature image because it is in the address/contact section at the top of the email and NOT in the email body. I've been through all the customising of the emails and there's nothing to indicate what has been done to add an image. It is an image that wqe have taken and saved on the computer because it's from our balcony.

Hopefully someone can solve this puzzle as my wife has been asking me to sort it out for a couple of years now and I've finally given up.

Earlier today my autocomplete on my emails stopped working. I didn't update anything or change any settings. And now all of the email addresses are in red when I type them.

I read through some other help threads and checked Preference / Composition / Addressing and unchecked the directory server box. Still nada.
