Where does this come from?

This is the setting

But I don't understand the change and I don't understand how the "#3" gets

Can anyone advise?

My google-fu hasn't revealed anything that illuminated this specific matter.


I think you are close with mailnews.reply_header_authorwroteondate, but I
think "time" is what you want to search the Config Editor with. What looks
promising is:

messenger.conversations.selections.actionMessagesTemplate
messenger.conversations.selections.contentMessagesTemplate
messenger.conversations.selections.systemMessagesTemplate

Those look like the likely date/time formats, but I'm not sure which is the
one triggered on "Reply"...

Time might come from the "locale". See the first line of this post of
mine, for example.

I have:

LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8
