Also, does this ever occur in Safe Mode (

I havn't tried this with safe mode.

I meant, follow the general directions at that link, specifically enabling msgcompose logging at a level of 5.

Sorry, I report the bug.
I didn't intend to do so much more :)

In that case, it's unlikely the bug will get fixed; I don't know if I can reproduce it, and as far as anyone knows, you're the only one available.

ok, where do I set these variables?
Which file?
set NSPR_LOG_MODULES=msgcompose:5
set NSPR_LOG_FILE=%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\My Documents\msgcompose.log
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe"

To get a log for another protocol, replace "msgcompose" with e.g. "imap", "smtp", or "pop3" in the above instructions. (This should log to a msgcompose.log file in your My Documents folder.)

These commands can be executed directly in the command prompt. (On Windows 2000, XP, 2003 Server: Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.)

(Adapted from the directions given for Windows.)
