In the compose message window, the toolbar that usually has the "send", "select
recipient", "include attachment", "check spelling", etc. icons has expanded to
fill the bulk of the screen and is showing all the compose icons in various
states in a large matrix.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Started Mozilla this morning.  
2. Left computer on all day.
3. Read some mail
4. Attempted to reply by hitting the "Reply to all" button

Also, just hitting "Compose" with no message highlighted causes the problem to

Actual Results:  
Compose message window displays toolbar full of icons.

Just hitting "Compose", not "Reply" also shows the error.

Exiting and restarting Mozilla did not clear up the problem.

I suspect this will go away once I reboot, just like bug 287929 did.  I will add
a comment when I reboot.

Expected Results:  
Should not have displayed all the icons.

I have a photo.  If your Bugzilla will allow it, I'll post it as an attachment.

Just rebooted my PC.  Problem did NOT go away.

Changed themes from "Modern" to "Classic" and problem went away.

Changed themes from "Classic" to "Modern" and problem reappeared.

Am now running with "Classic" theme.

I've seen a problem like this before in Composer when using a theme that hadn't
been updated for the Moilla version I was using. Do you still get this problem
with a recent nightly build?
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

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.
