Cannot compose/reply to email, "An error occurred while creating a message compose window
. please try again"
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060124 Firefox/22.214.171.124 Build Identifier: Mail/News 1.5 (X11/20060119) In the last day - after having used Mail/News (Thunderbird) 1.5 for weeks - I now get the following error when trying to reply to email "An error occured while creating a message compose window. please try again" I've looked at bugs regarding this but they all seem to be to do with a recent upgrade - which isnt my case - I've been using Thunderbird 1.5 for around 2 months now. Any ideas? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla Thunderbird 2. Click Write Actual Results: Error Message window "An error occured while creating a message compose window. please try again" Expected Results: Message Composition window default theme... nothing changed recently to make this happen... it just happeneed
I know this bug and have it also sometimes. I am using WindowsXP SP2, TB 1.5 and these extensions: enigmail, quote colors, quote collapse, AccountEx, MBoxImport, Remove Duplicate Messages, header scroll extension, minimize to tray, change quote and reply format, contact sidebar When this failure appear I can only click the "forward" button and than write my answer to the sender.
I too have problem with Reply/Compose -Won't Respond- also, I was trying to Paste into the Reply the Headers of the eMail I was Replying too... I could Select All the Hearder - Copy (I think) but then FROZE from doing anything else (Thunderbird NOT Responding... Could NOT past to Reply or To even Notepad...) What else do I need to do/show... I don't know how to get more info yet... Thanks
does this happen in _*safe mode*_ using TB version 126.96.36.199? [Ulf, Thomas, you probably want to add yourself as cc to bugs when you comment if you want to see future responses and solutions]
Version: unspecified → 1.5
@Wayne I´ve never try to reproduce this bug in safe mode. But it is a time ago until this error with my TB installation. So I don´t really know if this bug exists yet or not. And it is not really reproducible. This steps above doesn´t work every time.
Martin, Nerijus, do you still see this problem? ulf: "not seen this bug for a long time."

When trying to compose or reply i get "not responding"
tuukka reports seeing this "only in relation to bug 306379 Removing Spell button breaks message compose window", which was fixed back in mid-'05 and should have been picked up in TB 1.5. > When trying to compose or reply i get "not responding" T Johnson, exact text of message? version?
(In reply to comment #7) > T Johnson, exact text of message? version? No information since >4 months ago. -> INCOMPLETE.
