Would it be possible to make the pop-ups optional when you click on a message in Thunderbird that contains encryption?
I don't mean make it optional so it automatically shows the plain text without entering the pass phrase, but just so it leaves it encrypted until I manually click the "Decrypt" button.
I get a lot of messages where only part of it is encrypted & I don't need that part revealed every time I click the message.
Plus it would be less annoying when deleting a message & the next one has encryption in it, triggering the pop-up.
Menu OpenPGP > Automatically decrypt/verify messages.
In case you don't see the menu option, go to OpenPGP > Preferences first, and click on "Display Expert Settings".
HOWEVER: this works for inline-PGP only. Due to the way Thunderbird works, it is currently not possible to manually decrypt PGP/MIME messages

This behaviour really annoys me, so i did a ugly hack on 1.5.2 source to avoid it.
Patch is attached but its needed extract content of chrome/enigmail.jar, apply it then recreate the enigmail.jar.
Its not tested at all.
Why don't you simply disable automatic encryption using the foreseen menu option (OpenPGP > Automatically decrypt/verify messages)? You will then simply have to click on the "Decrypt" button if you want to decrypt or verify a message.
Its disabled, but still try to auto decrypt on PGP/MIME messages.
