Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install seamonkey>=1.1.6 2. Look at the mail window 3. See that the drop-down box labelled "View:" is empty. Some screenshots will follow. Using www/seamonkey from pkgsrc (http://www.pkgsrc.org/).
It's working under Linux and OSX, so you'd need to file a bug against http://www.pkgsrc.org/.
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.
