Attached file test.xpi

The event messenger.compose.onBeforeSend() does not lock the compose window completely. It is still possible to interact with the menu and the toolbar buttons.

For example: You can still change the delivery format or the priority. And you can even fiddle with the editor, i.e. the body of the message, via "Tools -> Quote Message". Multiple menu entries are still enabled, but seem to have no effect.

I think the compose window should get locked completely in this case - including locking all menus and toolbars.

There are multiple places where a global locking of the message compose window is needed, e.g.: Bug 1758469 and Bug 1758470. And in case of an "locking overlay" in the compose window as an alternative to modal dialogs - discussed in Bug 1607192. The solution should ideally cover all these use-cases.

Attached file lock.xpi

Most of the issues have been fixed in Bug 1862405 already. Added lock.xpi which does not send mails and allows to unlock the composer again.

The bold, underline and some other formatting buttons are available even if the editor is read-only, which I address in Bug 1883367.

I guess a disabled compose action toolbarbutton should also not react on clicks.

Anything else?

Will use this bug to verify all elements are locked and add tests.

This is a continuation of the effort started in D202887. Here we add
tests to verify the composer elements being correctly locked and
unlocked again.

The following still incorrect cases are fixed:

  • the spelling button is now correctly locked
  • action buttons are now correctly locked
