Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Thunderbird 0.6 

I have this intermittent behaviour and despite many many experiments could not
find a reproducible reason:

TB 0.6 under XP

Sometimes TB just comes up fine. I see TWO panes, the leftmost is called folders
and there I have my mail and news accounts and all of the relevant content. The
rightmost pane shows a menu of different tasks I can do. All functions properly.
I am Happy

Sometimes when I restart the client nothing populates the panes. In this case
the panes are THREE. The leftmost folders and the right is horizontally split in
two. The upper right is the "Subject, sender etc." and the lower is totally
white and is where I should see the text of the relevant item. All three panes
are well drawn but are completely EMPTY (white background). All menu items are
unresponsive but the buttons work fine. For example I can hit the Get Mail
button and do receive it or I can push the Write or the Address book buttons and
all works fine but the 3 panes remain totally white. I am very UN-HAPPY 8-(

The transistion between the two states is triggered apparently at random by
closing and restarting the client a few times (unpredictable).

Than kyou for any help. Bob Alexander
