Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Right clicking on a message line brings up the usual menu, BUT selecting "Open message in a new window." does nothing except close the menu. I THINK it used to work as expected on this system, but it's not an option I use often so it's remotely possible it never did. I've had other possibly display related issues on this system since package upgrades on 2009/04/21. (See: launchpad bug 364383, addition to bug 317855 and Bugzilla.Gnome 379994.)

( Ubuntu 8.04 AMD64, updates current as of 2009/04/24. Gnome desktop/GUI)

Tried it again and now "Open ... new window" works normally, after failing on 10-12 tries just before submitting the above. Nothing's changed that I'm aware of (no updates).

Guess it heard me complaining. If Mozilla's perfected self fixing software congratulations; meanwhile I'll keep poking at it.

Thanks for reporting this. Apparently the bug didn't appear again, so I'm setting the status to Invalid. Feel free to reopen the bug, if it happens again.

Changed in thunderbird (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
