Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Forward a message 2. Try to type 3. Actual Results: I couldn't get the focus on the To: field to type, unless I clicked on another window and clicked back. Expected Results: I should have been able to type.
reassign to ssu. If it's not for you, please reassign to varada
Interestingly enough I can paste to the field with the middle mouse button, but even that doesn't give focus.
jks, which desktop manager are you using? I seeing this problem (if it's the same) only with KDE and the recycled compose window activated. The workaround is to activate another window and then activate the compose window.
I'm using KDE 2.1. I discovered the workaround too and I thought I posted it but I guess I didn't. Change status to confirmed?
dup of 130581. other Workarounds: a) use gnome c) turn off the recycled compose window by adding the following line into your prefs.js file: pref("mail.compose.max_recycled_windows", 0); *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 130581 ***
