User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: version 0.9 This is posted in the mozillazine Thunderbird bugs forum: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=166108 Hi THere... I'm experiencing what I would call a bug. When I click compose, and then say change my mind not wanting to send the mail, the compost window will not close at all. I get the "do you want to save a draft" message, I choose no, and the compose window freaks out. The top header stays, but the rest is sort of transparent, and the window will not close unless I close out Thunderbird all together. Using Thunderbird 0.9 on XP SP2. Thanks! Yep, I can confirm this bug, it happens to me too. I've also seen it happen when I actually compose a message, send it and after a while there's this shadow window hiding behind my main TB window, I call it shadow because it only has the borders and title bar but everything inside is transparent. The window cannot be closed either, the only way to make it go away is to close TB. NOTE: I am using multiDesk (a multi dekstop manager), so it may be related, but I don't see similar behavior with other applications (and I use lots of apps), only Thunderbird seems to leave these shadow windows behind. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start composing a new message 2. Cancel message composition Actual Results: A shadow window remains that cannot be closed. Expected Results: Compose window should go away. NOTE: I am using multiDesk (a multi dekstop manager), so it may be related, but I don't see similar behavior with other applications (and I use lots of apps), only Thunderbird seems to leave these shadow windows behind.
It still happens in the 1.0 build 20041205 Is there anything special about closing the window to really make it go away?
