With recent nightlies, sometimes I get to a situation in which when I open a message compose window, the fields are grayed-out and I can't enter any text. I can't consistently reproduce this, but it's happened to me a lot. Restarting mozilla fixes the problem; sometimes closing all open composition windows and/or switching composition from text to HTML or vice-versa fixes the problem.

Having the problem fixed by "switching from text to HTML" implies a cached-composition-window problem. Next time you see it, try following it up by immediatley opening *another* composition window. I assume these are trunk builds (1.6a1). Do you have any extensions installed that might be causing this?

Mozilla gives me hell whenever I install a nightly - fscking up the chrome until I remove and reinstall the extension. Also, there's https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=311963 But all this is probably unrelated to the graying-out thing. Haven't been able to reproduce it again (although recent nightlies are otherwise flakey).
Seeing it again just now, with sm 2005-11-27. JS console says: Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER) [nsIMsgCompose.initEditor]" nsresult: "0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://messenger/content/messengercompose/MsgComposeCommands.js :: InitEditor :: line 3187" data: no] Source File: chrome://messenger/content/messengercompose/MsgComposeCommands.js Line: 3187 Error: gMsgCompose.editor has no properties Source File: chrome://messenger/content/messengercompose/MsgComposeCommands.js Line: 192 Still not sure how to reproduce this. This time I was composing HTML e-mail (don't ask why).
