New Mac user, so I'm not sure of exact terminology, but my guess as a programmer
is that this is MacOS X specific and therefore probably an XUL bug, but here it
goes.

Using TBird 0.8 Build 20040913, the To: field when composing new messages
stopped autocompleting from the address book.  I was able to manually open the
address book by clicking on the icon and fill in the addresses from there (FWIW
there is an LDAP address book involved, but it had been working for some time in
the autocomplete and also did work from the address book itself).

I was able to send that mail.  However, upon trying to cancel composing a
subsequent email, the little shade dropped down asking "Message has not been
sent..." Nothing I do will make it go away.  Main window still functions
normally, until I go to it to get the About box (to get the version info), which
is a shade on the main window.  Same problem.  It won't go away.  I can't quit
Tbird without forcing it to quit.

I have not been able to reproduce it yet (just happened) but I will try.  I just
got this Powerbook so I haven't installed any dev tools on there.  Back in the
old days there were ways to get information about windows from the Mac Toolbox.
 If something else exists in Mac OS X that I can run and relay information from
I am willing to do that.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to compose a new mail.
2. Note that autocomplete doesn't work.
3. Try to abort composition.  None of the "Are you sure?" options will make the
window nor the shade go away.
4. Try to quit application.  Won't quit.

Actual Results:  
Autocomplete in To: failed to work; application windows could not be closed and
application would not exit cleanly.

Expected Results:  
Autocomplete in To: should work.  Windows and shades should close when requested.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
