    mailto and Thunderbird

    alad_iim Level 1
      Hello!

      I'm using the following code in an CLICK event of a button to open the system's email client to write an email:

      var url:URLRequest = new URLRequest("mailto:mail@example.com");
      navigateToURL(url);

      On my system I'm testing with Thunderbird.

      If Thunderbird is already running and you then start the AIR app and click the button, Thunderbird pops up but no "new message"-window is created, only the main page is shown, and the AIR app hangs for about 20 seconds => DOESN'T WORK

      If the AIR app is running and Thunderbird isn't and I click the button: Thunderbird will be started and a new message windows appears with the correct email address inserted => WORKS

      If the AIR app is running and I start Thunderbird and then click the button: a new message window appears with the correct email address inserted => WORKS

      Can anyone agree to this behavior?

      Is this a "bug" in Adobe AIR or in Thunderbird?

      Thanks in advance!
