TorBirdy: Respect user preferences for header_type and message body type
Whenever Thunderbird restarts, TorBirdy resets the values for header_type and what type format to view emails, irrespective of user preference.
Something I noticed quickly after using TorBirdy is that it changes two settings forcibly whenever Thunderbird starts. The two settings I always change back after Thunderbird restarts are:
- View > Message Body As… > Original HTML: While I am aware there are potential security risks by enabling this, I prefer to view emails with the original HTML and subjectively choose to change this setting for a specific email as needed.
- mailnews.reply_header_type: After restarting, the value is adjusted to 1 from the default, 2. I prefer to have the full reply header type when I reply to emails.
While I respect the reasons the TorBirdy developers have for changing these settings, it's annoying for me as the user to have my preferences overruled every time Thunderbird restarts, and then I have to go and change this manually every time it restarts.
- Start Thunderbird
- User changes settings from default TorBirdy configuration, e.g. message body type and reply_header_type
- User closes Thunderbird
- User restarts Thunderbird, adjustments to settings preserved
