The dialog asks them if they are ready to send the message, and clicking Send invokes the Spell Checker. This seems out of place. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a message 2. Clearly spell a word wrong 3. Hit ctrl-return to send 4. Send Message dialog: click Send Actual Results: Spell checker invokes Expected Results: This is confusing. Why do I click "Send" on this dialog only to have the spell checker invoked? Why does this dialog only show when ctrl+return is hit, and not when the Send or File | Send Now/Send Later options are invoked? Yes, I know I can check the box to not show the dialog again, but why is it there in the first place? Classic Theme, Mozilla 1.5b on Windows 2000

(In reply to comment #1) >... > Sounds like the order of the dialogs should be reversed here. not sure I agree. the dialog is due to the preference setting Confirm when using keyboard shortcut to send message Now, with "spell check before sending" turned on there's probably no need for the confirmation, but that's the user's choice. To me, with both preferences turned on, it seems natural that the confirmation dialog appear BEFORE the spell check is invoked. should this be closed INVALID?
