With Thunderbird, I'm using Mnenhy, View Headers Toggle Button, Quote
Colors, addressContext, DictionarySearch, World Weather, and Enigmail.
With Firefox, I'm using Adblock (of course), Optimoz's Mouse Gestures,
DictionarySearch, Gmail Notifier, US Dept. of Homeland Insecurity Idiocy
Meter, HTML Validator, LoremIpsum Content Generator (Epsum factorial non
deposit quid!), SecurePassword Generator, TinyURL Creator, Advanced
Highlighter Button, FoxyTunes, EditCSS, and BugMeNot.
And they both still load faster than IE and OE. :)

Create a new filter and using your own info for the criteria, set the
action to "Watch Thread". I don't think it exactly highlights the thread
(I haven't used Watch Thread at all), but it does assign extra
filterable criteria to the entire thread. As an example, once you set up
the new filter, you can switch the thread view to "Watched Threads with
Unread" and only see threads you've participated in that have new messages.
I've been using Mozilla since about M17 and both FF and TB since the
early betas, and I've only just scratched the surface of the
configurability and power that the Mozilla products give me as a user to
do whatever the heck I want to do with them.
