As the subject says, I can't get the user.js file to do anything (like change the reply header). I'm certain that I have the file in the right location, and I copied and pasted the syntax. I even went to the mailnews.js file and set the header option to "4" (user defined). Still didn't work. Running latest ver of T Bird on Win 2K. Any ideas?

If on windows and you used notepad to edit the file be sure that notepad didn't automatically apped a .txt to the filename so that it ends up like user.js.txt.

Nope, made sure of that. Did you get it to work? Did you have to change the mailnews.js file (or any others)? If it works for you, where exactly did you put the file? Thanks.

Or if you edit it from outside - shut Firefox down first.

OK, got it working...stupidly, I didn't go down one folder deep enough in the path (duh!). Next question is, how do you change the quoting character from the boring ">" to something a little more creative? Thanks folks.

You should have put this in another post.
But try this link from a forum search that took all of 5 minutes to find.

Thank you for the admonishment. I did put this in another post a couple of times. No one responded. I also did try the search, but could only find information as useful as the link that you posted, which is not at all. Thank you for the reply though.
