New Message window doesn't open, and SeaMonkey quits. I've already sent a report through CrashReporter Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I can confirm this happening also on Windows XP SP2. I am experiencing the same problem, running the 2007102702 SM trunk build... instant crash, and it happens with either clicking the "Create a new message" button in the mail client OR clicking a "mailto:" link in the browser or external program (like win32pad). Also, perhaps the Component should be different (in addition to the Hardware and OS)?
Same with Vista. Confirming the bug and changing the HW profile and component. I will work on getting a crash dump.
Maybe also see Bug 401360.
The symptoms are different. In this bug the crash is immediate, rather than after typing something. (I suppose it could be the same root cause however.)
Probably more a dupe of bug 401288, which has (at least) two different ways of dying: 0. open mail editor 1a. tab from subject into body, or 1b. when in subject, click into body 2. crash Furthermore, the crash ;-) seems to distinguish between doing compose from a browser window (direct crash) or a mailnews window (lazy crash, see above).
I looked through all of the comments in that bug and I agree.
