I use mozzilla thunderbird as email, when I try to forward a message, it has everything outlined in red lines, showing original sender and I cannot remove that information... Please suggest how to forward the way it used to, letting me remove information who it came from.

If you wish to remove the original sender, I suggest you don't forward. Create a new message.
Copy the contents of the email by running your mouse cursor over the entire message.
Start a new compose with you as the sender and fill in the recipient.
Put the cursor in the body of the email and paste the contents.

Every forwarded email I receive shows who originally sent it and to whom it was sent. This info is part of the forwarded email.


If I choose to share this email with someone else, I actually do the steps I described above so no other person but me appears.

I do that, but the message part still has the red square around it. Thanks for your reply anyway.

Does this happen with all emails or just this one?

It is best to just create a new message and copy and paste the contents you want to forward to the email itself. However, it is important to mention that the email was forwarded from a given source.
