Prevent quoted message HTML from affecting my response

I am using Thunderbird 115 with mostly default settings. When I compose a brand new message, pressing the Enter key inserts a new paragraph, with extra line spacing, and pressing Shift+Enter inserts a line break with single line spacing. This is how I want things.

I am experiencing a problem when replying to emails from a particular sender. Their emails HTML code contains a "<style>" element that removes the extra spacing for paragraphs:

<style type="text/css" style="display:none;">P {margin-top:0;margin-bottom:0;}</style>

When replying to their emails, their HTML is inserted as quoted text, and the "<style>" element affects the whole email, including my response as I compose it. As a result, when I press Enter, I no longer see the extra line spacing, and Enter or Shift+Enter results look the same in the HTML version of my email. Yet they insert different content, and in fact the plain text version of the email still adds two line jumps for paragraphs vs a single jump for line breaks, and I cannot tell while composing.

Then, when I send my email, the recipient email reader (e.g. GMail or Office) appears to somehow pick up the difference again, so my paragraphs are displayed again with extra line spacing. This is an issue, because I cannot tell the difference between paragraphs and line breaks, they look the same to me, and I end up using both interchangeably. But they don't look the same to the recipient, and the resulting response looks messed up.

How can I prevent the quoted email from overriding styles in my own response?

I tried installing the CustomCSS addon to add my own "<style>" element, but unfortunately it gets added at the top of the document, and the quoted response's "<style>" element comes afterwards, thus overriding anything I set.

Perhaps the sender's configuration is at fault (they should not use a global "<style>" like this), but they are a customer, and it would not be appropriate for me to ask them to fix their email configuration.

The only "solution" I can think of is to switch to "Body text" as default style, such that paragraph blocks are never used. I think it is a shame to loose this feature, but at least there is no surprises.

Following installation of the 32 bit version of Thunderbird 128.0b on 12 June 2024 the content of all emails in the Inbox which existed at that date - and back to 28th September 2021 - would not display at all.

Emails in the Drafts and Sent areas were unaffected.

Emails received since 12th June are displaying normally - as are e-mails dated prior to 28th September 2021.

I have re-indexed the Inbox with no improvement.

The INBOX e-mails show quite normally in Windows Mail -which I only use on my laptop.

Hello,

I updated to 115.11.1 (32-bit) and unified folders will not appear and the option will not stay checked. I have exhausted my options. I previously had 64-bit with same issue so I deleted and installed 32-bit as some said this would help the issue ( I'm on 64-bit windows 10 OS).

I've tried deleting smart mailboxes, virtualfolder and jsontreefolder

nothing is working, I am at wits end. Please help!

Greetings once again: It's been well over a week now and still not able to download any e-mails from anyone. I've changed my password as you requested me to do and if I send out e-mails, they seem to go out just fine, but STILL no e-mails coming into my account. WHY IS THAT? Please let me know if there's anything else I need to do, to be able to receive my e-mails. Thanks again. Dave Beard [removed personal address from public]

Hi I shop online with Sainsburys. Until about a month ago everything was working fine but now when I make an order or amend the existing order the email from Sainsburys does not come in. I have the email 'service@sainsburys.co.uk in my address book both on Thunderbird and Talktalk. Now, I changed my email address with Sainsburys just to see what would happen and the shopping order confirmation email came in fine but if I use my normal email address nothing is getting through by email. Sainsburys have offered some advice to no avail so now I ask you - how can I get back my emails coming in when I order from Sainsburys? May I add that the Tesco site works fine. I wonder if it is from the 'glitch' sainsburys had a few weeks ago when all orders were deleted etc? Thanks for any help at all. Regards

I'm using Thunderbird Supernova, Can anybody tell me why I have (a DRAFT and DRAFTS) folders? When I save my emails for later they are saved in the DRAFTS folder, the DRAFT folder appears not to be used. I have tried to delete it but guess it must be some sort of system folder. Any help please. Thanks

Greetings: This is the third time that I am contacting you about not being able to receive any e-mails. Thunderbird is the only one that I use and haven't been able to receive any new e-mails for the past week or so. You notified me that my account had been compromised or words to that effect, and that I needed to create a new password. I did this(with a bit of difficulty) and still have no new e-mails coming in to this account. I did try to SEND an e-mail out, and at first it stopped me for my NEW password. I gave it, and it then allowed the e-mail to go out just fine. I sent one or two more since then and they too seemed to have worked fine. For some unknown reason though, I STILL am NOT receiving any new e-mails. Can you please help me with this problem? NOTE: As I am STILL NOT able to receive any e-mails, would it be possible for you to send me any possible solution for this problem via my regular USPS mailing address? David Beard [removed address info from public support forum] Thanks much for any help you can supply.

My one iCloud email account has been working fine in TB for months. Today sometime TB (115.8.0) began unsubscribing all but a few of my iCloud email folders, including "Sent", "Trash" &c. All other email accounts in the client are unaffected. I resubscribed all of the folders, but they keep unsubscribing - that is, the subscribe process isn't holding and the folders it retains seem random. All the mail and folders on iCloud.com are intact, but TB will show them (some or most of them) briefly, then unsubscribe all but a few. I've tried deleting the account entirely (including data in Thunderbird folder) and re-adding - the problem persists. I've been bale to solve this one. Anybody?
