Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Copy some text to clipboard, source not critical 2. Open a new message in Thunderbird 3. Place mouse pointer inside the compose window 4. r-click the mouse, select Paste Actual Results: Text is pasted into the To: line Expected Results: Focus should move to the compose pane and the text inserted there Not sure what version first had this problem, but it is solid. In order to get the expected result, it is first necessary to l-click before doing the r-click -> Paste This is a departure from Thunderbird version 2, at least.

Duplicate of bug: 329482
I do not believe this is a duplicate of bug 329482 because it has nothing to do with timing. It has to do with the fact that after the compose window opens (wait an hour if you wish), then put the mouse pointer into the compose window and paste something, it ends up in the To: field, NOT in the compose window. In previous releases, the insertion point was properly moved into the compose window before the paste operation. No arguments about "proper progression" please.
you are saying this is a regression compared to version 2, which definitely makes this not a dup of bug 329482. However, I can't reproduce using your steps. Wherever I right+click, I can paste. Can you reproduce this when TB is started in safe mode? Is this html compose or plain? Signature or no signature? graphic in sig?

In TB 3.1.9 it is solidly reproducible (Windows XP, SP3). 1. Copy something (source does not matter) text or image 2. l-click New 3. Place mouse cursor inside the new message's body area (some call it a window, some a pane, whatever - the big area where the new message goes). 4. r-click, choose Paste In 3.whatever it goes into the To: text field, because that's where TB puts the insertion cursor. HTML, no signature. I don't know what you mean by "graphic in sig". I haven't tried safe mode. I forget how to do that. Other users in the TB Support Newsgropu did reproduce it.
