A point [dot] "." at the beginning of a news post line will sometimes be doubled

So let's test this bug fix while testing the Thunderbird 78.5.0 release 
candidate on Windows 0 (20H2).

What is font-size: 10ex;

There is no ex unit in css.  Did you mean em:  If this is what you meant 
then the font size will be 1000 times bigger.  1 = 100%; 10 = 1000%

Gee Whiz, even an eighteen year old bug report would have been referring 
to Windows ME or Windows 2000 wouldn't it?? Not Windows 0, surely, 
Walt?? ;-P

I don't recall what Windows version the bug report was filed about, but=20
I was testing on Win10.

Saw that "Win O" when I read it in the newsgroup.

Fired another proofreader.

My new plan is to email all my posts to you for review. =F0=9F=98=88

SM 2.53.6!

I guess I skip 2.53.5.1 when I get around to updating or is that a beta?

Prerelease as usual. Stable is 2.53.5.1. Wanted to see if the double dot 
problem is in it (shared code so yes). Fixing for 2.53.6 probably.

I just use the Message Header Toolbar Customize extension.

Not sure what it has to do with this topic though.

I (re)discovered the "double dot bug" on 16 September while replying on 
a message with the subject "Was On 68 something Now 78.2.2 - Awful !" 
where Andy Burns asked "I do wish I could remove the icons from the mail 
header toolbar"

Out of curiosity, I checked with exact same text that originally went 
wrong (changing a single dot to a double dot) and it turns out that the 
bug has been fixed in the latest version of TB.
