I am using Thunderbird 14.0 on KDE 4.9 on openSUSE 12.1. I notice that
Basil is also using Thunderbird 14.0, but so is Carlos Robinson and his
messages display correctly (from my POV).

Is this something I can adjust at my end or is it set in the sending
User-Agent? I prefer to read all messages in the same font size, as it
is less tiring.

Just for the record, I am using Thunderbird 17.0a1 :-) . Also, I am
using UTF-8 character set while most people still use the
Western-whatever char. set - if you find some weirdo characters in posts
then you get bet your life that this is caused by this difference in
char. sets.

But to get all messages to display the same way (ignoring the UTF vs
Western part) is to deselect in Preferences>Display>Fonts the option to
allow messages to display in their preferred fonts - ie, they will be
displayed in the fonts you have chosen to be used in TB.


I'd already done that, but it didn't have the expected effect. The
solution was the one suggested by Karl Ove Hufthammer.
