never seen anything like this. WFM also, version 2.0.0.13pre (20080207) and trunk windows.

Vladislay, are you clicking address book entry, doing "write message", then tab?  If not, do you see this if you start in safe mode? 
Summary: Interface logic bug. One of many. → new message to recipient from adressbook entry starts cursor in message body

I can confirm this bug on TB2.0.0.12 and also on TB3.0a1pre.

Steps to reproduce :

1. Start Thunderbird
2. Click an Adressbook icon to open the adressbook.
3. Choose an entry from the adressbook and rightclick and choose "Write message"
4. The new dialog box for writing the mail appears. The cursor is flashing in the mail body field and not in the subject field.

Mac trunk seems to put it in the body with HTML compose, in the subject with plaintext; Windows seems to put it in the body with HTML compose and nowhere with plaintext.

Phil, this is wfm on Windows. Would you have 1 minute to spare and verify if this works on MAC, too?

STR: (rewritten from comment #3)
1. Open TB Address book
2. Click an Adressbook icon to view the adressbook.
3. Right-click on a contact's entry from the directory pane, then "Write" from context menu

Expected result (as seen on WinXP):

Compose window appears.
The cursor is flashing in *subject* field (i.e. *not* in the message body field).
