Posted on 2011-10-12

I am using mozilla thunderbird for an email client and when I reply to an email the font size seems to change from line to line.
The signature size is smaller than the text in the reply.  The reply is larger than the requoted text.

    I'm not exactly sure what you need, but you can click "view" on the tool bar and select "formating bar" to give you options on changing font properties. If Thunderbird is set to display messages in html, the message will display with the formating set by the sender, so the font properties will differ from what you might use for your reply.

    we do have the formating bar up , it is set to display in html,  
    Our problem is in the reply to the email. If we set the response to the email to look correct for us on the screen and we send it. What the person gets is not formatted to look like we sent it. Either our text is larger than the rest or too small.

    Take a look under Tools-> options-> composition-> Formatting or fonts and set your fonts to your desired size.
    See if that helps.

    tad, what version of TB are you running?
    Can you please post screenshot of your email with the different font sizes, with the personal info blacked out (if you desire)?
    But I'd like to see the toolbars in your compose window.  I can't replicate your issue in tb 9.0
