Steps to reproduce:

call thunderbird from the commandline

thunderbird -compose "to= a@mailaddress.dk"



Actual results:

If thunderbird is not already running it  starts  a new account dialog!



Expected results:

Thunderbird should have started the same way as when  thunderbird  is  running, with the write window and the TO: field filled  with the address specified in
 -compose "to= a@mailaddress.dk"

Interesting, the space after the "=" shouldn't be there but it works anyway. I'm unable to reproduce this on Windows 7 with TB 10.0.2 using exactly your command options, the composition window opens whether or not Thunderbird is running.

Is there anything else specific to your installation, e.g., any add-ons installed which may interfere with the usual behavior?

Are you calling Thunderbird from a cmd.exe window or from some script?
