User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0

Steps to reproduce:

Until last week I could write in a mail the Swedish name Åke, using the insert special character function. When I click now on it to insert nothing happens.

Actual results:

When I click now on it to insert nothing happens. Choosing a second time insert special character doesn't open the pop-up any more.

Expected results:

I would have expected that with version 68.0 (32-Bit) this function would still work and I could insert a special character into the text.

Sorry, yes, that got broken in TB 68.0. We'll get it fixed for TB 68.1.

How? and Where?

Write window. Click in body. Menu: Insert > Characters and Symbols ... Click "Insert". Nothing inserted. On the next attempt the menu doesn't even appear.

Thanks, Alice. Bug 1541789 strikes again. I thought that when looking through the code last night in comment #2, but didn't see anything obvious. But given to the strange behaviour that the panel doesn't come up a second time, maybe it's related to bug 1541144.

Ian, I see you more active lately. Any idea what has gone wrong here. It would affect SM, too.

Thank you so much, Ian. I must be blind:
How did I not see that :-(

Your patch looks spot-on, I'll give it a whirl in a little while.
