Hope this is the correct forum... spend a few hours searching for an answer before posting this.
Is there a way to get Thunderbird to close the original message when I Reply on it.
To me it would be the most logical thing to do, since usually I will not reply on a message unless I already read it.... and I guess most has configured the reply to automatically show the original message inline... the original message window/tab is completely irrelevant/obsolete/redundant, correct?
Do I really have to close the original message window/tab manually when I'm finished replying on it??
Hopefully I overlooked some configuration option..., please tell me.

That option is added by the extension Change Quote and Reply Format.

Sounded to me as a very old add-on; and unlikely that an add-on would be needed for that purpose. Anyway; I downloaded and installed - and it works. Thanks a lot.
