How do I change the "Ctrl-E" key binding of the external editor in Thunderbird? My fingers are hard-wired to use C-e as end-of-line, because of 25 years of using Emacs. smile

That's not possible afaik unless you change the binding in the extension code. If you want to get into this, I can tell you exactly where to search.

I don't know anything about the Mozilla extension language, but hey, it's just software, I'm willing to have a go wink

Ok, so
you must unzip the external editor xpi.
You'll find a chrome directory containing exteditor.jar
unzip it too.
Edit the file content/exteditor.xul

Search for this block and change the setting "E" and "accel" if you want. For the modifiers, have a look here.
<keyset id="tasksKeys">
<key id="key_exteditor"
key="E" modifiers="accel"
oncommand="launchExtEditor()"/>

</keyset>
Then, repackage everything back.
If you're on Linux, just use the included makefile at the top level.

Good luck
