This issue still exists in Thunderbird 68. This addon works great to resolve it.

If you prefer not to use an addon, or have moved to Thunderbird 78+, you can also fix the issue by manually editing the the advanced config as discussed here:

The config editor is now accessed under Options > Options > Advanced.
