User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041026 Firefox/1.0RC1 Build Identifier: Thunderbird does not have that kind of line, it is version 1.0 (20041206) - from said dialog Whenever I start Thunderbird 1.0, it asks me whether I want to send the messages which are in my Unsent Messages folder as soon as I am online. Via Tools - Options - Advanced, I checked that I do NOT want to sent them, instead of "Ask me", so I clearly do not want to be asked. I also always start the application in online mode, since I have 24/7 internet access, so the question is superflous and annoying. Changing the line user_pref("offline.send.unsent_messages", x); with x either 0, 1 or 2 manually in prefs.js does not change the behaviour either. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. set up IMAP email account 2. set preferences so that you do not want to send unsent messages when going from offline to online 3. restart Thunderbird Actual Results: get asked if you want to sent unsent messages Expected Results: should not have shown the dialog box This started happening with the 1.0 version, was not in 0.9. No extensions installed, standard theme. Pretty annoying though. Might go back to last version before 1.0 because of this.
Bug 224671 might be related, since it is the exact opposite of this bug.
Reproduced with TB 1.0 and TB 1.0+0222, Win2K. On program startup online, prompt appears regardless of setting of the preference. On program already running, and going online, if you haven't already been asked once about this behavior, you will be prompted if the Preference is No *or* Ask Me. And, this prompt features an Always Ask Me checkbox which is checked, regardless of the state of the preference. But: Once you have selected either Send or Don't Send, the preference will be followed on subsequent online actions (and the preference will be set according to the state of the Always Ask checkbox on the prompt). However, answering the prompt from the Going Online action does not affect the behavior of the Starting Up action. Maybe this is by design, but it seems needlessly complex, even obscure. (In reply to comment #1) > Bug 224671 might be related, since it is the exact opposite of this bug. That bug is a dupe of bug 232452, which has been fixed; but that fix didn't cause this problem, assuming you're correct in your observation that this started after 0.9.

Comment on attachment 231291 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix (tb + sm) thanks for the patch, Magnus. I don't agree with this bug 100% since starting up isn't necessarily the same as going online, but since the user has chosen not to be reminded, which is not the default behaviour, it's better to err on the side of not bothering the user.
