in my java script, if I try to set the wrapColumn right after setting the editor type, it failed because the editor hasn't been instantied yet. The problem is that I cannot set it later because I don't know when the editor will be ready for it! in msgComposeCommands.js: window.editorShell.SetEditorType("text"); window.editorShell.wrapColumn = msgCompose.wrapLength; Look's like that the auto wrapping will be broken for M7
Yes, we need a way for the editorShell to store values that must be set in the editor once the editor has been instantiated. Should be pretty easy. Is this a blocker, or a must-fix for M7?
Would be nice to fix for M7. Right now, I can continue typing in the html mail compose window, but the text doesn't wrap to the next line; instead I see the scroll bar although the window doesn't scroll as I type. Other symptoms include: wrapping at strange places so that the text looks like: this is a test here is some more text - this part should have been on line 1 Tried this on 6/14 builds of Win32 and Linux. Have not tried Mac yet.
Sadly, I won't be able to commit to fix these in time for M8; we've had a huge flood of regressions in the last few days and I'll need to spend my time on tracking down where the bustage happened.

A fix has been checked in; now the editor shell should store the wrap column until the editor is created.
Auto wrap is working in the composer editor but not in mail. I logged a separate bug 12320 on the mail issue. For this bug, I verified that in the composer, the wrap column does work. I tested it in the following M9 builds: Win32 seamonkey 1999-08-16-09-m9 and 1999-08-20-16-m9 builds Linux seamonkey 1999-08-16-08-m9 build MacOS seamonkey 1999-08-20-16-m9 build. Marking this bug verified for the composer editor.
