Error: ReferenceError: EnableDisableAllowedReceipts is not defined
Source File: chrome://messenger/content/preferences/receipts.xul
Line: 1

There is oncommand="EnableDisableAllowedReceipts" on this radiogroup but such a function is defined nowhere.
This may have been caused by copying these elements from /mailnews/extensions/mdn/content/am-mdn.xul which has similar code. The needed function is also there in /mailnews/extensions/mdn/content/am-mdn.js . But I can't trace the history of this file so far to prove that.

So we have 2 options:
1. just remove the oncommand attribute and live with the fact that the suboptions under "Allow return receipts for some messages" are not disabled when this option is not selected. You can see in the account settings (where am-mdn is used) on how this panel should behave.
2. somehow make the function from am-mdn.js accessible here (/mail/components/preferences/receipts.xul). But the code in the function is not usable without changes as it references elements and variables not existent in receipts.xul.
Interestingly, Seamonkey has its own copy of this prefs panel.
3. open-code the function again and make it work on the existing elements and do what is needed. Unfortunately it seems to me the prefs dialog does not have the nice infrastructure to enable/disable/lock dependent options that account manager already has. It is open-coded for each option separately :(
What do you guys think?

I think options 3 would be best.
