Regression between 20090402 and 20090403:
Editing in HTML a draft message (Drafts folder) brings up a broken text with usually yellow background.
Similar to bug 466360

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compose message in HTML
2.close and save message
3.re-open (Edit draft) the message: HTML mingled, collors, fonts settting and formatting lost.

This is caused by the presence of a signature certificate (see bug 466360)

Comment 2

Did some additional testing to confirm:
- Problem occur when signing certificate is used
- Problem do not occur without signing certificate
based on the same message text and HTML formatting.

Also tried and confirmed the bug on Linux platform
OS: Windows XP → All
Version: unspecified → Trunk
Does this happen with a simple test message or is a bit more text formatting required? This seems to work fine here with a current comm-central/1.9.1 build: I saved a signed HTML message with text formatting to Local Folders and on my local IMAP account. Both times editing the draft worked fine.

More testing shows that this appears with simple HTML (table, embedded images) + signature certificate, stored then re-edited from either Drafts folders or Template folder.
More complex HTML (CSS) also shows the problem.
Next validation is to use a clean profile.
Related: Bug 392558, that one is no regression though.
Ok, so it looks like to reproduce the bug, you need to for example embed a image and leave the "Attach this image to the message" checkbox checked. Then editing the saved draft (signed) will have a yellow background and a broken image. Now another question is: Is this really a regression as Bug 392558 described a very similar bug which was already present in Thunderbird 2?

Good point Frank !
I walked back on my own tracks to figure out if we are in a SM regression (starting April 3rd) or into a duplicate of Bug 392558 and I rather think now it might be related to the Thunderbird bug.
I started to use embedded images then (April 3rd or so) into my messages (save as drafts). As I always use my S/MIME cert, this led me to think I was back into something similar to bug 466360, I thought "regression", although there was something new in my Email composition (images, CSS...).
Hope this helps...

I see today (nightly 20090420) that the bug is now solved. I don't know what could have solved the issue.
Not sure if TB and bug 392558 is also in the same case though
Closing this one.
