When I right-click on a file in Windows Explorer and select "Send to" and then choose "Mail recipient" Thunderbird 3 opens as well as the new message window with the file that I selected attached.  My problem here is not with the main program window opening (see Bug 518444) but with the message window not becoming the active window for the user to edit the message and then send it off.  The original explorer window stays active all the time.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on a file in Windows Explorer and select "Send to" and then choose "Mail recipient"
2. Wait for system to respond

Actual Results:  
Windows explorer window remains active and in front of Thunderbird windows.

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird message window with selected attachment active and up front ready for editing by the user so that they can send it off when they are ready to do so.
Can you start thunderbird in -safe-mode ( ?

I'm not seeing this. So it could be another program interfering somehow.

There's nothing in the event log. Turns out the window does move to the top of everything, except the explorer window that I'm right clicking on to get the send as menu.
I'm running out of idea on how to figure out what's wrong on your systems

It's different now. I only see this the first time I try and send mail, second and subsequent times it works as expected. Can reproduce by restarting Thunderbird.
