Where does this come from?

This is the setting

and has a value of

But I don't understand the change and I don't understand how the "#3" gets
formatted.
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'd be happy to get back to my old "AM"/"PM"

I have:

LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8

I've never set that in my outermost shell.
In fact the outermost shell that starts Thunderbird (as well as Firefox and
others) gives:
anton@main:~> date
Wed Aug 8 11:34:30 EDT 2018

and I'd be happy with that.
So something is wrong inside T'Bird.
