Steps to reproduce:

1. Select a message
2. Press Ctrl+U
3. Try any of the menu items in the Edit menu of the Message Source-window

They don't work at all. The only menu item that works in this window is
File|Close Window.

Tested with Thunderbird 0.1 and WinXP.

I've found that both Thunderbird and Firebird have a problem with their
Cut/Copy/Paste commands when:
 (I) cutting/copying from these applications to another external application, and
 (II) cutting/copying/pasting internally.
I've also found that attempting to cut/copy will erase whatever is on the
clipboard. Pasting from and external source works. The three main venues for
executing these commands have been attempted, namely (1) Edit Menu, (2)
Right-click Menu, and (3) Keyboard Shortcuts.
I am using Windows 2000, Thunderbird 0.3, and Firebird 0.7. I hope this helps. 
I've tried version 0.4 on Linux (Mandrake 9.2 using Gnome 2.4) and Copy/Paste
works if using the keyboard (Ctrl+C/V) but not using the menu. I have only
encountered this error in the "View Message Source" (have not tried elsewhere).

Hope this info helps.

The problem still exists using TB 0.5 under Windows2000. File menu operations 
do not work, but keyboard operations (i.e. Ctrl-C) works as expected.

Ctrl-A and Ctrl-C are but the only ones working. Finding text within a mail's
source still doesn't work, whether tried via clicking Edit->Find, pressing
Ctrl-F or typeahead find (which I miss most).
There's no bug addressing problems with find. Does this one cover it as well or
should I open a new one for that?
