edit task after "add email as task"
Since a few days, I cannot edit the task anymore when I add an email as task in Thunderbird. Previously, adding an email as task gave something between brackets [[xxxx]] and I could type in front of it. After hitting enter, this text between brackets was converted to an envelop followed by the subject of the email.
Now, when I add an email as task, immediately the envelop is shown, but I cannot start typing in front of this envelop. And if I do after the envelop, the link to the thunderbird mail is broken. Anyone else facing this issue?
(Centos 6.4 -- Thunderbird 17.0.9 - add on version 4.1)

We've changed the way this feature works so now you won't see the entire code in this task, but you still can add text before or after the subject line, the only difference is that it will be displayed underlined as part of the link.
Note - to type some text at the front, you must place the cursor at the front of the text and not at the front of the envelope icon.
I noticed this and am wondering why you chose to incorporate the text into the email subject. I do not like this at all as I prefer to see the actual email message subject and separate text. I find that I can more quickly recall the contents of the email if the subject remains as is and I can add separate text.
Any chance you might go back to the (better) way it was before?
