Description Wolfgang Rosenauer [:wolfiR] 2007-02-19 04:55:34 PST
I've updated to 1.1.1 and now I can't compose mails anymore but just get
"An error occurred while creating a message compose window. Please try again."

Turned out that the problem is:
EX: = TypeError: Components.classes[';1'] has no properties

I don't have the spellchecker component installed since I build RPMs which are split up and spellchecker is a subpackage which I don't install usually.
That worked always in the past but now fails with SM 1.1.1

Dunno how that crept in...

At least I can compose mails again with that patch. Thanks.

Shouldn't we be doing:
if (";1" in Components.classes)
within the InitLanguageMenu function too? Does this also need fixing in TB?

No, because the spelling button will be disabled.

>Does this also need fixing in TB?
Probably. I pinged scott over AIM.

Neil checked this in, I moved the 1.1.1 tag accordingly.

Phil, are you interested in porting this to tbird since you're helping out with Bug 377662?
Comment 7 Phil Ringnalda (:philor) 2007-04-18 14:19:21 PDT
Yep, I'll get it this weekend, but probably by reusing bug 318030 since it looks like maybe Tb needs some help disabling the UI once you do get in without a dictionary.
