Reply header format

In the good old days, a Reply header looked like this:
On Wed, 28 Dec 2016 20:10:40 +0100, Sample User wrote:

But this format has been abbreviated and mutilated:
On 12/28/16 20:10, Sample User wrote:

There is no day of the week, no century, no second and no time zone 
any more.

Is there any possibility to return to the old format?

Thanks in advance,
Wolfgang

I also saw this as far back as 45.0.0.

In the options, use Extended or Customized reply header, and check 'Use 
long or customized format in date field' and try 'Date in localized format'.

Since I have 50.1.0, I have to downgrade to 45.0.0 or is there any 
workaround?

What are you talking about?
There is no 50.1.0 Thunderbird release.
Your user agent says you're on 45.5.1. 45.6.0 has been released a few
days ago.

You misunderstood me.  I wrote that I saw this same problem in 45.0.0.
You would need something even earlier, but I do not know how much
earlier.  Furthermore, you might not be able to use a much earlier
version with your current profile.

You are right. I have to apologize because I confused my release of 
Thunderbird with that of Firefox.

> 45.6.0 has been released  a few days ago.

I wait for the next automatic update.
