open the account manager, create a new account. for the signature, specify a new file, one that doesn't exist. it will create that file, but as a directory.
I think we already have another bug on this?
I don't see one similar to this. Searched for open bugs with description = signature.
Reassign to alecf
don't need to fix this for beta
I figured out where this is happening - it's in the prefs code of all places. it assumes this pref is for a directory.... I'll fix that when I fix up prefs.
Depends on: 21135
not really a beta stopper.
Target Milestone: M15 → M17
Mail Review recommends this bug as beta2 stopper. Adding nsbeta2 keyword.
I disagree that this is a beta stopper, this only happens if you manually type a signature path... if you choose one via the file picker, you don't hit this problem.
Well, at least we got some new information in the bug :-) I doubt many people will type in the value. Removing the nsbeta2 nomination on the assumption this isn't affecting many users.
moving to future milestone.
Target Milestone: M25 → M30
over to sspitzer, staying on the CC because this is kind of a prefs issue (with GetFilePref())

this is probably a dup of #66668, or vice versa. over to racham, since he owns #66668
