    Open message in new window (T'bird 1.0)

    If I right click on a message and select "Open message in new window", the mail opens up in a normal viewing mode.

    If I double click on it, it opens as if I had clicked on the "Edit Draft..." button.

    Is it possible to make the double-click open up the message in view mode only, a la Outlook?

    Update: I just installed Thunderbird on my parents pc and double-clicking does open a message in the 'view' mode there, so I'm now pretty confused...

    Same version/release?

    (aside: When will you learn to Leif well alone?)

    I discovered yesterday that in plying various WinXP tricks to get my status bar (Notification area) working again, my user settings seem to have sunk. Today I've been logging in to everything I'd previously been logged in to, including the Lounge.
    I'm suggesting that your Documents&Settings (or similar) might have been corrupted? With the inevitable corolory that your parents settings have not yet been corrupted.

    Presumably, you've now fixed this. I am unable to reproduce your issue. Is it a Windows setting difference? HTH

    Not resolved yet. I'm going to try a re-install when I have a chance...

    You could also open your prefs.js file and see whether anything funny has slipped into there. I would tend to think tha the setting couldn't have arisen any other way. In fact, deleting/renaming your prefs.js file is more than likely to accomplish what a reinstall would. HTH
