Mozilla Thunderbird Unable to Render Correct Sized Images

Ubuntu 18.04 on C. 2014 System76 Kudu Pro laptop; Intel® Core™ i7-4910MQ CPU @ 2.90GHz × 8 64 bit
16GB memory; Haswell Mobile chip

. . . Just came up with a problem in T-bird associated with graphics rendering.

First noticed anomaly when an ebay order confirmation hit my inbox displaying a gigantic check mark that covers and somewhat obliterates three lines of entries.

Later when ebay sent an "Order has shipped" message, the icon of a delivery van was superimposed like its predecessor, obscuring a portion of the inbox.

At first I assumed it was ebay's intention to send such large icons and contacted them (it doesn't require a JPL shift manager to deduce the probable outcome of THAT conversation) - but after installing Sylpheed and noting that the same icons were being handled properly with each of the two images - check mark and van as constrained within the height of a single line, it became evident that Mozilla is no longer maintaining T-bird at the cutting edge.

Trying to tweak T-bird's html/plain text settings was unproductive, so it's back to using the excellent (and IMHO hackable) Sylpheed.

Thunderbird has occupied a niche on Mozilla's back burner for quite some time and now that news of a prospective new developer comes into focus I will assume that T-bird's difficulties will soon be addressed.

all three images show "block remote content".
have you tried unblocking it?
i'm not usually encouraging people to do this, but when you're dealing with ebay i really don't think there's a way around it.
