Last modified: 2008-03-06 12:45:39 EST
Description of problem:
Using thunderbird in the form "thunderbird -compose <some address>" opens a
thunderbird mail write window, but the recepient (given by the -compose option)
is missing (empty to-field)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.thunderbird -compose <some recipient>
the write window is open with an empty to-field
the to-field is set
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=421192) and believe that it is
more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
