It requires a mouse click in the message window to get keystrokes to register, after which all is well. This bug was not around until 1.2 beta on my Linux box. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open new message (CTRL-M or from menu) 2. Fill in To: email (or leave it blank) 3. TAB to Subject: 4. Fill in subject (or leave it blank) 5. TAB to message body window 6. Type some characters Actual Results: No characters appear in message window until you click there with the mouse, after which everything is peachy. Expected Results: Keyboard should have let me begin to type the message.
Reporter, I tried your scenario with a 10-17 build on my linux system in both Plain text compose and HTML compose windows and did not see this problem. This appears to be a dup of 173818 which was fixed on 10-17, I will mark this a dup of that bug, but please take a current build to see the fix. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 173818 ***

More info on this bug, reporter this bug states this happens with a New Msg window, however with the 10-16 build on linux I can only see this problem with a Reply Window when my default compose window is set to plain text compose for the account I'm using. The dup bug is for a Reply window too. I tested this again with the 10-17 build which had the fix and what I saw with the reply window is fixed. If your scenario does not include a reply window, and you still see this with a current build please reopen this and give more details like the type of compose window (plain text or HTML), the theme you are using, does this happen in a 2nd compose window if you close the first one without clicking in the body of the message. Keeping this as dup for now.
OK, another dup bug 175665 mentions New Msg window with a plain text signature has the problem. This was the missing criteria to see the problem in a New Msg window, I did see this and it is fixed too.
