Usually attempts to reply to these emails mean that the email text composition panel will not accept input thereafter until I restart Thunderbird. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Attempt to "reply to" particular email message 2. 3. Actual Results: Message composition panel will not take input focus. Expected Results: Should be able to type into message composition panel This only ever happens with emails from this one user!
This works for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; rv:2.0b13pre) Gecko/20110227 Thunderbird/3.3a3pre. Can you try in -safe-mode ? (see http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode)
Thanks Ludovic. Tried in safemode but made no differrence at all. Was unable to compose a message. Tried to send myself a message, which worked but the spell check reported an error! I have subsequently tried composing a new message (after first attempting to reply to the offending email) typing a short message into the box - with one word miss-spelled. Although I could not see any text when typing, the spell-check on sending reported my bad word. So it seems that the text is there, but I can't see it or highlight it. I have tried replying to the original email. When I try and reply the email composition box is blank - completely white. I click in the box and type. Nothing can be seen. I send the message to myself. When I open the email that arrives, it has the original content, plus what I typed. The original black background has now gone though. Bizarre. Maybe time for a re-install. Paul
This is fixed in current trunk, but not in 3.1.7 Paul, you can see a few workarounds in the duped bug
