For a long time I have been doing:

/etc/locale.conf change: LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"

To make Thunderbird list messages with 24 hour time. Can someone suggest a better way to accomplish this?

add export LC_TIME=C to your .bashrc
Of course you'll need to logout/login for this to take effect globally in your GUI.

I view Thunderbird meswsages on a black background with white text, works well for my vision problems, however T-bird displays quoted text, e.g. joe@xxx.com, in dark blue which I can't read unless highlighted using a hand magnifier! Does anyone know how to change that color? I would be happy if everything was displayed in bold white text, the colors are without benefit "to me anyway."

I have been having a problem with TB for quite some time, and I am getting rather tired of the problem.

Images in messages that are sent to me by users of windows are not displayed in TB. Rather, all I see are empty boxes where images are supposed to be.

This is not to say that every message I get from windows users containing images are treated this way by TB.

I am just saying that some individuals I know, who use windows, and send me email containing images are treated this way by TB.

Is there a setting that I need to set?

I upgraded to fedora 20 from fedora 19 using fedup. Everything went well except for some weird issues with Thunderbird. The latter is now giving me a pile of weird permission errors and disk space errors. There is 250GB free space, so I know that is not the problem. Obviously this has something to do with the permissions on the thunderbird folder, but I do not have the knowledge to rectify the problem.

Please suggest how to proceed?
