The To line turn gray, the subject line turns gray and the enter body area and the tools turn gray in color and unusable. They only become usable if I completely shut down the program and restart it. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.leave the program open for a while 2.try to compose an email 3. Actual Results: It makes it impossible to compose an email. Type in an email address to send email to anyone or fill in the subject line. Expected Results: allowed me to put in an email address,compose an email with out restarting the program
opening another window does nothing. Every window simply does it until you restart the program
I have also experienced this same issue, so I thought I should chime in. I'm running Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 (20070221) on Win XP Pro. I was also having to restart Thunderbird every time this happened. Until I read your suggestion to open another reply window. That apparently reset whatever was wrong, and I can go on with replying and forwarding as necessary. In terms of causes, I have tried various things to see if they affect anything. But I haven't come up with anything helpful. All I can say is that it just starts happening after awhile. Sometimes it happens when the computer has been left idle for a time, and sometimes it starts within an hour of starting Thunderbird, even with intermittent use of Thunderbird. I have not tried running in Safe Mode. I am running a couple extensions: - AdBlock Plus (ver 0.7.2.4) - Lightning (ver 0.3.1) - URL Link (ver 2.00.3)
Reporter, does this issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies? (1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is now 220.127.116.11)
