Description

8 years ago
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #644983 +++

STR:
- install webtabs from http://jonathan.protzenko.free.fr/webtabs@momo.ca.xpi
- open a twitter tab
- switch to the main mail:3pane tab
- select multiple threads (so that you get the MultiMessageSummary)
- switch to the twitter tab
- switch back to the main mail:3pane tab
- click on one of your RSS feeds
- there should be a message displayed ; instead, the message pane is blank, and the error console reads

Error: window.top.content is null
Source File: chrome://messenger/content/mailWindowOverlay.js
Line: 3072

This happens *without* Thunderbird Conversations. Double-clicking on a feed item fixes the issue.

This patch:
* Ports fix from TB bug
* Matches position of early return with TB as comment in code suggests.

I'm not an official MailNews reviewer, and don't know how to test the "broken" case, but feeds still seem to work with the patch applied, so f+ it is.

Seems reasonable, although I think what's happening is that the Thunderbird conversations code must be messing with which browser is the active browser thus confusing the code that populates the content property.

[Why do we still have code using XPCNativeWrapper?]
