User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird
10 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have ubuntu with thunderbird running smoothly. But it is (like my whoile system) iinstalled in Dutch. This is my mother language, so not a problem there. But when I reply to email it says something like "the other person SCHREEF (= "wrote" in Dutch). Since I mainly use it for my website I have the majority of my emails in English. How do I change this back to english so I don't have to constantly change it back manually?
I hope somebody can help me!

Alright thanks. I can find the preferences menu, but where do I change this "mailnews.reply_header_authorwrote" to what I want? I can't find where to change it..? I also tried to search for the userContent.css file but I can't find it..
I suggest you try the Chromedit2 extension. I don't know if it works under Linux, but under Windows it will create the optional files userContent.css, userChrome.css and user.js in the correct location when necessary.
As for the header, insert the following code into the (optional) user.js file:
You do not need any extension just to change a preference. In the article I referred you to, follow one of the links near the top—preference settings or about:config.
This topic has nothing to do with userContent.css, but if you want to work with it for some other purpose, see its article in the knowledge base: http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserContent.css
True, but it sometimes is easier.
And I prefer to change a couple of settings through user.js for which that extension is very convenient.
Alright thanks! I just didn't click on about:config! There I found exectly what I needed!
Thanks a lot!
I have the same problem. (Hungarian->Englisch)
It works for reply, but I have no option by forwarding.
I cannot change the hungarian header by forwarding to Original Message.
I havent find any option.
Do somebody know, how to change it for forwarding mails?
You have posted to a thread that died out two years ago. Please start a new topic and provide details of the problem you are having, including the version of Thunderbird that you are now using.
Locking this due to the age of the original posts.
