I don't think it has something to do with pkgsrc. I just built both seamonkey-1.1.5 and seamonkey-1.1.6 without all the pkgsrc patches, and they still behave differently.

Since the changes between 1.1.5 and 1.1.6 are very small (only about 400 lines), please have a look at them and tell me if there's anything that may be related to this bug. I don't know the code, so I cannot do it very well.

I just tried with a newly created user account, and there it worked: All versions show the correct dropdown box.

So it certainly is related to something in my $HOME/.mozilla directory. That directory though, has a long history: It's several years old and I have imported it from the Mozilla Application Suite. I have no idea where to look first.

I finally found the cause: In the file localstore.rdf, there was a line

<RDF:Description RDF:about="chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul#searchBox" collapsed="true" />

I changed that to "false", and now it works.
