That's what the "End" key was invented for... ;-)

Probably I'm using Thunderbird in a wrong way or, worst, I'm using the wrong tool, anyway when I use the "End" key, I'm immediately been taken to the last mail of my inbox/last post of the group.

Probably you are forgetting that you must click on the message pane first. :-)

I didn't think about that!

No, really. I usually press "n" (on the list of messages) to go to the next unread message, I read the message, then I press "n" again, and so on.

Clicking on the message pane and pressing End is slower than directly using the scroll bars of the message pane.

This is giving to me an idea, I could write a Thunderbird add-on capable of automatically scrolling the message to the first non quoted line.

Better, I'll Google a bit to see if that add-on already exist (very probable).

Thank you,
