The thing that is annoying to me when using Thunderbird is when somebody replies
to a commit message, says something in the replies to some code in the middle
and doesn't trim anything below their last comment. Maybe this is a gmail thing
that collapses all the remaining text, but in Thunderbird, I need to scroll down
just to see if they said anything later.

It would be good if people trimmed the text in the email they are replying to
past their last reply.
