User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Thunderbird 1.5 The space of the message headers sometimes is too large. See attached screenshot. The "gray area" does not end at the last header, but moreover often a huge space is introduced. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a message. 2. Look at the headers. Actual Results: Gray area sometimes is too large. Expected Results: Gray area should only cover headers.
Happened under rare circumstances with 1.0.x as well, but now happens nearly every second time I open a message with 1.5.
Indeed, could be related to Cc and Reply-to, but have not found a real "scheme" so far. Only know that it got much worse in 1.5
Yesterday "it happened to me" with a message with a lot of Cc's, but no Reply-to.
Now it also happened with NO Reply-to and NO Cc, but two recipients in the To-Field
It seems to happen if there are multiple recipients in the To: header. No Reply-to: or Cc: headers are necessary. It does not always happen, sometimes a message is shown with the large header bar, sometimes it is okay. Tested with TB 1.5/Win32/x86.
please check for duplicates before filing a new bug. sounds like bug 255201.
As noted at bug 262875 (per comment 3), I think this problem was cleaned up with bug 335973, around July '06. I wouldn't put much faith in (or effort into) bug 255201, reporter there is unreliable.
