From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; de-AT; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020504 BuildID: 20002050408 If I use the 'Compose'-Button (or reply and so on) I get an error-dialog saying 'An error occured while creating a message compose window. Please try again.\nR' (\n - you know by C/C++ programming). By the way: it would be fine if I were able to copy the error-message out of the error-dialog. But the text can't be selected :-( (this would help to avoid wrong re-typing the message!). Franz Offenbächer Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Starting Mail 2. trying some ways to produce a new mail, to respond on some and so on 3. Actual Results: 'Message Compose'-error dialog like described above Expected Results: there should be a 'write-mail-window', don't you think so? I saw this bug with a nightly build - I think, it's been one two or three days old. The yesterday-build worked, but I could not start it today again! The yesterday-build opened its main window - and didn't handle any windows-message at all (minimize, close, button actions - nothing possible but killing the task)! So I fetched the new one.
dup of bug 142285?
btw.. how do you install mozilla? Do you uninstall older builds first?
Reporter mailed: "Yes, I deinstall the older Mozillas first (I saw the postings about that)! But I have an Netscape 6 as a backup staying alife - and, just like now, I need it: I couln't reply if I would not! Ooops: additional: As you have read above, I now use Netscape. But: first I noticed, NS is starting at http://home.netscape.com/de/browsers/6_2/su_setup.html after using Mozilla (I set it to start with a blank page). And in Netscape there is a modified setting: server for outgoing mail is set to 'use name and...'. This doesn't work with my configuration! " ---------- This may be some profile corruption since it seems you share the profile between Mozilla and NS6.2. That seems to cause problems more often than not. Does the bug occure with your current Mozilla build if you create a new profile (for only Mozilla)?
Summary: Cant compose a new mail, can't reply and so on → Cant compose a new mail, can't reply [shared profile NS6.2]
I get the same effect with build from cvs branch 1_0_0 2002050417 but without using Netscape6.x and even with a new created profile. I will test it as soon as possible with the codebase from today (branch) I'm using Linux so please set OS to 'all'
hmm, I've just tested using *NOT* de_AT and now it works. Reporter, can you please check this for your installation?
Resolving with no reply from reporter to last query. Reporter, if you still have this issue in a current build, please reopen and comment with details/answer to query.

Actually more likely a dup of fixed bug 154734, a spinoff from currently reopened bug 131384. It's a little unclear if that one concerns commercial branch builds only - or not.) Anyways - the issue is known.
