Further attempts modify the same account, lest it's deleted (!), then it creates new. Expected results: New account's type is asked and account created.
Go to about:config and filter for "mail.server.server" and look for an entry like: mail.server.server<NN>.valid where the value is false try toggling this to true or just delete this entry.
I had the same problem, not being able to create an account. Phil's advice worked for me. So, why should mail.server.server<NN>.valid being false prevent one from creating a new account? Is this a bug?
The summary of bug 521861 'After creating news account through clicking news URL Account Wizard is broken (skips account type selection, bound to invalid news account)' needs some love.
