When you insert a few returns (so that a scrollbar appears at the side), the gray box disappears, but when you remove the returns, the little gray box appears again (attachment image002.png). Also I noticed, the gray box seems so big as the marking is which you delete. You can also delete some quoting with the backspace-key, then the gray-box gets as height as one line in maileditor. When you close the reply window and reply to another article (which fits into the window, so that no scrollbar appears), the gray box appears again (without deleting some quoting or so). When closing the mailclient and starting it again, the same starts from the beginning. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Reply to a news article (a long message where you need a scrollbar) 2.Delete some of the quoting Actual Results: A gray box appeared. Expected Results: No gray box should appear.
same problem three days earlier: Gecko/20020907
Created attachment 99661 [details] another Screenshot - read comment another type of appearance: - I click the "answer"-button - the message-window will be build in 1.5sec - 2sec: first I see the border then the inner part of the window will be shown ==> look up the screenshot, to see, the appearance with the grayed box. The size is the same, like Frank Wein's big example. If I click into the window to write my answer, the grayed box will disapper and won't be shown again. Frank Wein, said he has to delete some lines - I don't have to. I think I'll see that bug in 10% (max.) all of my postings. I can't reproduce it - it comes, it goes ;-) shown example: Message-ID: <am9qmh$3o9gv$2@ID-57159.news.dfncis.de>
Created attachment 99669 [details] screenshot2 - after clicking into the edit-area you'll see, that the whole posting fits into the window.

Hm, I'm resolving this Worksforme for myself, couldn't reproduce this problem anymore with newer build Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016, either with Classic or Modern theme, either with or without format=flowed Resolving Worksforme
Hi Frank, I had the dupe 171344 and agree with You: don't see it anymore since Version 20021012
