Using Mac build dated 19990824M9 and linux 19990816M9 build only user can't type
in body of a Reply to a msg in POP account only in HTML or Plain text modes.  In

Does not happen on Windows.

2. Launch Messenger
3. Select a message in you Inbox of a POP account
4. Click the Reply toolbar button
You will see a Compose window come up with the addressing field and subject
filled in.  Note: the body is empty and you can't get focus there to type in a
reply.

Expected: to be able to type in the body of the message for replying

Reassign to ducarroz, cc buster. Can you guys decide whether this is an M9
stopper? Esther, can you try this on an M10 build? I'd prefer to avoid the M9
branch if possible.
Reply HTM/plain text in HTML mode or reply plain text in plain text mode works
fine for me on Mac with a M10 build. Can somebody test it on Unix?
add Seth in cc
Using the M10 builds dated 8/25 on Linux and Mac the scenario in this bug is not
a problem.

Therefore I mark this bug as works for me.
So, do we want this functionality in the M9 builds that are released?  I guess
it depends on who will be using M9.  QA will be moving to M10, most folks
developing on Mozilla will go to M10.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
using 19990915 on linux and 19990915 on mac this is now working.  Verified
