Praise me! Praise me! :-)

With some more search engineering I found a way that works.

It works _at the moment_.

It's so stupid that by using your brain in a normal manner
you never would have come up with such a stupid idea...

Go to the "hamburger menu" -> Preferences -> Preferences ->
Advanced -> Config Editor and accept the risk. Now add a
new entry of type "string". The entry's name shall be:


It's value shall be empty. Yes, you need to add a setting
that has no actual value (except you consider empty string
a value, which is acceptable).

Restart Thunderbird.

And now in German, please. :-)

PS. Let's see how long this hack works. Probably when the
next Thunderbird version will be released, the trouble with
the interface language start again...
