This is unpredictable, as I'm not sure how to reproduce it. I composed this bug report in the mail composer, and tried the various actions that often, but not always, incur this unwanted behavior, but I couldn't make it happen at this sitting. I usually get caught with this when I've nearly finished a message, and after I make some edits in the body and use Ctrl-End to go to the end of the message, I press Enter twice to skip one line before adding my signature, but frequently a second blank line is inserted. This has also happened when, after doing an interior edit, I return to the end of the last line in the message to add more to that line, and to my surprise, I find myself taken to a new line. I've found one way to prevent this is to press the End key before adding new text, which seems to preclude the addition of extra newlines. This is a new behavior, which I'd guess started with around SeaMonkey 1.05 or 1.07, and something I never saw before. My guess, if this is contained in the code, is that it is an attempt to anticipate the intent of the writer and start adding text on a new line.

Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey 1.1.9 ?
I've had it reoccur in SeaMonkey 1.1.9, including a day or two ago, but I've gotten so wary that whenever I move to the end of a line to add more text, I almost reflexively press the End key to avoid the problem. I've tried causing it to happen, but haven't found the right recipe yet — I can't say what the exact sequence must be to generate the effect. I'll leave off my End-key preventative, and try to pay more attention as I compose messages to see if I can learn how to reproduce this effect.
Tony can you reproduce?
I haven't seen this occur for quite a while, but am experiencing something similar. In the message editor, if I paste text using Ctrl-V I almost always get a newline inserted before the text I'm pasting. This happens so often that I've taken to using Ctrl-Shft-V in order to insert only the text in the clipboard, without an extraneous preceding newline. I don't know if this is related, but as it involves the insertion of a surprise newline, there is some similarity. This latter behavior is something I should report in a new bug, but I've just been lazy and using the Ctrl-Shft-V in all pastes.
(In reply to Wayne Mery (:wsmwk) from comment #3) > Tony can you reproduce? Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 SeaMonkey/2.26a1 ID:20140123003001 c-c:bdb58bfe1041 m-c:b9d9649e7ec0 Comment #0 lacks a precise description of the problem, but I think I can. This happens in particular when I try to paste a signature from the clipboard at the end of the message. (All the messages I write are plaintext.) Let's say I write a message and end it with: Best regards, Tony. With the cursor immediately after the full stop on the same line (or maybe somewhere higher, if I did somme error correcting), I leave the mailer to generate a pseudorandom signature (starting with dash-dash-space-newline) in the clipboard. When I come back to the mailer, I hit Ctrl-End to make sure that I'm at the end of the message. At that time (thus before any pasting of the signature) I sometimes find myself up to two lines below the "Tony.". For best effect, I then hit Backspace until I'm at the start of the line following "Tony." and I hit Ctrl+V there. For me, this always inserts the signature where I want it, i.e. with the dash-dash-space line immediately under my name. This is slightly different from what is described in comment #4 by the reporter, who sees the unexpected lines added before the clipboard contents after hitting Ctrl+V.
