Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird version 0.8 (20040913)

Upgraded from 0.7.3 to .8, leaving profile data intact. Chose "custom," and did
not select "offline support." When I launched .8 for the first time, it was
stuck in offline mode, without an icon to tell me that, or allow me to choose to
go online. 
Uninstalled .8, leaving the profile folder intact. Installed again, chose
"offline support," and Thunderbird performs correctly, including the presence of
icon. 


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install .8- custom
2. do not check "offline support" box

Actual Results:  
Thunderbird stays in offline mode, without an icon to show off-or online status

Expected Results:  
Perhaps should have given the choice to go on or offline, and inform me which
state I was in.

No themes installed, no extensions. My 0.7.3 installation did have offline support.

Are either of you still affected by this using Thunderbird 1.0?

When installing Thunderbird 1.0.2 (20050317) English on German Windows XP and
chose open Thunderbird 1.0.2 now at the end of installation, it opens up in
offline mode.

Oh, I'm sorry for my last comment as I did not read the bug description on top:

“When launched, 0.8 is in offline mode without status icon- can't download or
send mail”

The status icon is shown. It's only that it's started in offline mode.
