bottom of your email app, that indicates it is a signed message. I
have signed this message¹, so you can see what it looks like. Having
received my public certificate, you are now able to send me an

It did, although Thunderbird doesn't show it prominently. There is no
key icon at the bottom, but a closed envelop with a sealing wax
(spot?) at the top.

Yes, that indicates that the signature was valid. If the envelope is
red, it is invalid. When you click on it, you'll find out why.

PGP signed posts get a green bar the width of the email window.

I guess the Mozilla guys have their own preferences :-)
