Thunderbird will not open while an instance of message compose is already running. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find a "mailto" link on the Web 2. Begin composing a message 3. Try starting Thunderbird Actual Results: The window entitled "Compose: (no subject) flashes on the taskbar and dominates. Expected Results: The window should have remained open, and Thunderbird should have been permitted to run as a separate instance. As far as I know my computer is quite ordinary. It's a Dell Inspiron 2200, only a few months old, with Windows XP Pro as the OS. I have not fiddled with program/thread priority or anything else that would cause this hitch. I did see a similar (I think) bug description when I looked, but it was for a MAC OS computer.
