Description Steven A. Falco 2007-02-09 21:29:59 EST
Description of problem: I used to be able to create folders by right-clicking on
"local folders", then selecting the "new folder" item.  Now, when I do that,
thunderbird hangs.  None of the menus work, and if I click the close-box, a
message pops up that thunderbird is not responding.

The same thing happens if I use the file->new->folder menu.  This seems to have
happened around the same time as the recent drag-n-drop bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start thunderbird
2. try to create a folder
Actual results: thunderbird becomes completely unresponsive

Expected results: new folder created

I just tried downloading thunderbird- from mozilla.org.  It works
properly - I can create folders with no problems.  So, this problem seems either
to be specific to the x86_64 architector or specific to the Fedora packaging.

Odd.  the drag and drop patch is also upstream.  Does this still happen with .10?
Comment 3 Steven A. Falco 2007-04-10 22:22:34 EDT
As per your suggestion, I just upgraded to .10.  I have the exact same behavior.
 Attempting to create a folder by right-clicking or from the file menu causes a

Interestingly, when I try to create a folder, the title bar of the thunderbird
window goes inactive.  If I move the mouse to another window then back to
thunderbird, the title bar again becomes active, but no controls do anything -
no menus work, etc.  And clicking the close box causes the "not responding - do
you want to terminate the app" message to appear.

If there is a way I can provide any more information please let me know what you
