actif  Sujet n° 204  Installed but failed to get it working in Thunderbird 2.0.0.6

I have installed External Editor 0.7.3  (my first try) in the latest Thunderbird 2.0.0.6. Installation went ok, the "Edit in External Editor Ctrl-E" menu option appeared as expected.

But things won't work if I select this menu option. I tried several times, while composing a new email, with the following "Text Editor" commands in the External Editor Settings dialog:
 - <empty> --> Error message telling me I need to specify an editor
 - gvim.exe (I have it in my path) --> nothing happens
 - "c:\Program Files\Vim\vim71\gvim.exe" (picked by browsing to it) --> nothing happens
 - notepad.exe -> nothing happens
Except when the editor path is empty, it's as if Ctrl-E is was a "no-op".

Any idea of what could be causing the problem that I see?

Thank you very much for an extension that seems to do exactly what I want...   --Ivan

Hum,

it seems to be installed properly.
I have no idea why it doesn't start your editor.

Do you have some error or even warning messages in the javascript console ?

So, the problem was indeed that I had not installed the "External Editor" icon in the toolbar (it was not obvious to me that this was mandatory to be able to use the automatically-inserted menu item).
Maybe testing for this case and picking a default editing mode would make sense... anyway.

Thank you, globs, for your support and indications !
