User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080311 Firefox/2.0.0.13
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080311 Firefox/2.0.0.13

The mailfrom preferences window displays blank on OS X, but works on windows. Investigating with Console squared, shows an error:

lastSelectedPane has no properties
chrome://global/content/bindings/preferences.xml
line 749

This indicates this is a problem with the preferences binding on OS X only.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Mailfrom 0.2 addon on a Mac OS X
2. Tools -> Addons -> Mailfrom Preferences

Actual Results:  
Blank window

Expected Results:  
Mailfrom Addon preferences window (as seen on windows)

Found another addon that exhibits the same problem: http://code.google.com/p/colorediffs/issues/detail?id=34
