David Cvet, have you been able to resolve this bug? As noted in comment 1, there were several potential problems; the issue in bug 169414 still exists. Also, bug 177280 has been fixed for a while. (perhaps this is a dupe of that?)
This also occurs in Thunderbird 0.4. You are able to check "Play a Sound" but the options to select a custom .WAV file are grayed out. Downgrading to 0.3 fixes the problem.
Re comment #3: I believe this is off-topic to this bug: the original reporter said that he could 'select custom wav file for notifications' - comment #3 sais that 'the options to select a custom .WAV file are grayed out'. @danny peck: retest on a current nightly build of Thunderbird, and file a separate bug if your UI problem is still present. @reporter: I cannot reproduce your problem on a week-old Mozilla trunk build on Linux - is your problem still present? Do you have artsd or esd or any other application or daemon running that might be blocking the sound device? To get sounds working (Linux, KDE) I have to use 'artsdsp ./mozilla' to start Mozilla, otherwise artsd will block the sound device, and mozilla natively doesn't know about arts. To test, just kill anything that might be accessing the sound device and try again.
*** Bug 228024 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Oops, sorry about the duplicate -- not sure how I missed this one. In any case, yes, this bug still exists. I'm running KDE and made sure to kill all sound servers (artsd). I also tried running mozilla under artdsp. I also tried running it under esd. No success in any of these cases. I got sound working [outside of mozilla] in all three cases 1) no sound server 2) artsd 3) esd -- so it's not that my sound is broken! I've also tried prepending file:///, file:\\\, and lots of other possibilities. Any ideas on how to debug this? Existing summary is misleading. Someone with permission should change summary to: mail notification custom .wav file doesn't play [preview button doesn't play it either]
Still broken in Mozilla 1.6. Anyone have any ideas on how to debug this?

(In reply to comment #9) > Similar to bug 225219 . Dupe? Could be a dupe. Reporters at 225219 claim it's now WFM with TB 1.5. David Cvet, is this bug still a problem for you with Seamonkey 1.0 (or TB 1.5, if you've switched)?
