ASCII letters, numbers and german ß ligature works fine. I'm using Sun Ray terminal with Sun keyboard - typing ä means here pressing COMPOSE-a-". I did not have any problems with previous version (Thunderbird 3.0.4/Lightning 1.0b1 prebuild by Sun Beijing Team, Solaris 10, SPARC). Reproducible: Always
Works fine for me testing Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168pre) Gecko/20100629 Lightning/1.0b2pre Lanikai/3.1.1pre. (But I don't have to use a COMPOSE key due to my German keyboard layout) Does it work in other Thunderbird windows and dialogs?
TB 3.1/Lightning 1.0b2 (not pre!) works fine on Windows XP with german keyobord. I will check the same version (1.0b2) on Solaris/SPARC tomorrow.
Ligtning 1.0b2 (Solaris/SPARC) from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/1.0b2/contrib/solaris-sparc/ solves the problem. All umlauts are handled as expected. Thanks! André
