Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2062.120 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Create a new message and complete it so it can be sent to someone.
Then send it.
Create a second new message.


Actual results:

For a brief moment, when the new Message Compose Window appears, fields are populated with last values (To, CC, message's body). It is easier to see it on a slower machine or while the computer is already heavily working on something else.


Expected results:

A new message shoud always start with empty fields. While it doesn't prevent anybody from using Thunderbird correctly, some sensible information could be visible long enough to somebody who should not see it.

Maybe the Message Compose Window's initialisation process is executing too late a step that should be done at the earlier in the sequence...
