are we sure this is something we really want? see blake's comment http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=172047#c23 "It made no sense to "fix" this. Windows doesn't have Redo in textbox context menus, and for good reason -- it's hardly ever used. Blind consistency isn't always a good thing." the mailnews compose spec doesn't cover it (see http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/specs/compose/) let's wait for jglick to comment (that might be a while). let's hold off unless someone else has some usability data or examples of where apps have both undo / redo in the context menu.

Note that Editor has a Redo context menu item (when available).
I would agree if we don't feel its a commonly used item, it shouldn't be in the context menu. In order to avoid huge context menus, we should limit them to the more frequently used actions. http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/specs/compose/Comp_Menus.html#ContextSpecificMenus Subject Field - toggle Undo/Redo Context Area - no Undo or Redo.
Oh, so would you like to have Undo removed from the content area context menu? Or perhaps you would prefer to see them only when they are available?
Comment on attachment 113697 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed patch rejected, based on the feedback from jglick. should this be wontfix, or should we morph this into the spin off issue?
