Replies to messages with large attachments doesn't populate fields/message body properly.
Last modified: 2010-09-30 08:15:21 EDT
Description of problem: When replying to messages with large attachments the to field and message body isn't populated
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): thunderbird-188.8.131.52-1.fc10.i386
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check messages via IMAP
2. Open message with large number of attachments
3. Wait for download of all attachments
4. Read message and determine a reply is warranted.
5. Click "reply"
6. Notice that To field and message body isn't populated
From is populated, To is not, and the message body from the previous message isn't populated.
To field to be populated with address
Message body to be populated.
I've tried this after downloading headers only, after partially opening the message and after completely finishing the download. This works fine on messages with small attachments or none at all. I have replicated this on a number of messages. Ironically this is new behavior as it was working properly on an earlier version in rawhide
This may be an upstream bug, but I figured I'd start here.
We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=462063) 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.
David (reporter) please cc yourself to the upstream bug - there is a question there for you to answer. Thanks.
