When writing e-mails there are times when I'd like the cursor to advance down the page just one line with a stroke on the ENTER key. I swear my Thunderbird used to do this. Now the default seems to be a two-line jump per ENTER key stroke. A pain in the butt for making lists, signing mail, etc. I now have to tab or space all thte way to the line end and utilize word wrap to enter text on the next line.

When I receive mails some of them have character ISO-8859-1 and some have UTF-8.

The ISO characters doesnt show the right characters, f.e. ë will be displaid as ë.

In View/Charactersets I change the set again and again in UTF-8, but no result.

How can I permanently change the characterset in UTF-8?

Using Thunderbird 24 on Windows 7.

Preferences-Display-Fonts-Size allows me to change the text size in the message pane, but what I want to do is to increase the size of text in the message list above the message pane, and in the Folders list to the left of these.

I need larger text to help an older user with poor eyesight, so any advice will be greatly valued.

I have already set the Windows system font to a workable size.  It doesn't seem to affect the Thunderbird font at all.

I've made a New Years Message carefully formatted in html (via text2tags). In particular, it has its own CSS, some live links to pages on the web, and some jpegs and pngs (also already on the web). How do I send my New Years Message in Thunderbird? ( I know that I could send it as an attachment, but thats not what I want; I want it to open as a pretty page of html )

When I forward an email, there's a huge header that I can't remove. It annoys most of my recipients, many don't see what I've written and don't reply, some think I've got a virus and delete the email.

I'm talking about all the lines as below:

X-Account-Key: X-UIDL: X-Mozilla-Status: X-Mozilla-Status2: X-Mozilla-Keys: Delivered-To: Received: X-Received: Return-Path: Received: Received-SPF: Authentication-Results: DKIM-Signature: X-Thread-Info: Received: Received: Content-Type: MIME-Version: Message-ID:


I'd also like Thunderbird to stop displaying these fields on emails I receive.

Looking at my inbox or other email folder, the font used to show the list of emails in the folders - is giving me a headache.

How can I change this font? Is there an add-on? Something in one's profile?

Ideally, I'd like to change the background white color too. (Maybe to the color on this page where I'm asking the question. This is easy to read, both font and color!)

I was a programmer in a former life, so I'm tech aware. I'm new to using Thunderbird (I've been using FF for several years.)

Thank you!!
