This is a Thunderbird "feature". It's stupid and they refuse to reverse
it. See <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1309486> including
my comment at <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1309486#c38>.

The only way around in Mailman it is to set General Options ->
include_list_post_header to No. This will restore the old behavior
except you will no longer be offered a 'reply-list' option in Tbird and
other MUAs that support that.
