I don't use T'bird, but in Mozilla Mail (now part of Seamonkey), if you
shift-clicked on the Reply or Compose button, you got a compose window
with the opposite of your normal HTML compose preference. There was
also a place to change the send status for individual messages (so
you could send as text even if you'd composed in html). T'bird
doesn't offer either of those?

I just checked on my husband's copy (I don't have T'bird set up
here) and shift-click works (shift-click on Reply brought up an
HTML compose window when his usual pref is Plain), so that should
solve your problem.  I don't see the send format in the Options menu
of the compose window, which is where I'd expect it, so maybe they
removed that from T'bird.
