User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050913 Firefox/1.0.6 (Ubuntu package 1.0.6) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050913 Firefox/1.0.6 (Ubuntu package 1.0.6) When using thunderbird on linux with a profile created on Windows, TB crashes when trying to write an email (be it a new one or a reply) when "Attach this signature" is enabled, and the file location is in the form of c:\bug\sig.txt To be more precise: I had a signature enabled in windows, copied my profile folder over to my new linux machine, and booted thunderbird with mozilla-thunderbird -safe-mode to get past the fact that of course my skin was not there. When replying or composing a mail with an identity which had 'Attach this signature' highlighted in windows, it crashes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make profile on windows 2. Attach a signature to the identity 3. copy the profile folder to linux 4. Get firefox on linux to use all the settings (I did this by making a new profile, and putting all the files from the windows profile there) 5. start with mozilla-thunderbird -safe-mode 6 quit 7. start thunderbird normally 8. compose a mail, and at least select the identity with the signature Actual Results: Crash - thunderbird is closed. Expected Results: compose an email :)
Oh, and if I alter prefs.js, and set attach_signature to false, and remove sig_file and sig_file-rel, the problem is solved.
It's not possible to share all of the profile between windows and linux, though much of it works... Anyways, tried to reproduce, but couldn't get any crash. Using version 1.5 Beta 1 (20050915) /linux.
Severity: normal → critical
Summary: Crash: composing when sig-file is pointed to a file on a windows disk → Crash: composing when signature file is pointed to a file on a windows disk

Using version 1.5 Beta > 1 (20050915) /linux. I've got the same trouble, and solved the same way. Lines like thees where the cause: --<cut from profiles.ini>-- [Profile0] Name=Alberto IsRelative=0 Path=/home/alberto/.mozilla-thunderbird-profiles/Alberto Default=1 --<cut from prefs.js>-- user_pref("mail.identity.id1.sig_file", "D:\\Mis Documentos\\ThunderBird\\Alberto\\signatureOky.txt"); user_pref("mail.identity.id1.sig_file-rel", "[ProfD]../../../../../../../D:/Mis Documentos/ThunderBird/Alberto/signatureOky.txt"); tb crashes when composing/reply/forwarding *AND* in the main tab for the acount in the accounts setup.
->WFM, feel free to reopen if you can reproduce with 2.0. And if so, include a talkback id. <http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback>
