Description:   Opened: 2020-01-13 10:15
I am converting from using the 'Signatures' plugin to Smart Template.

I have converted the 4 signature files that I used and they work fine.

If I get a note from a person and I am the only recipient, then the 'reply'
button has the option of choosing which template I want to us.  This is working

However, if I get a note from a person and there a multiple recipients, then
the 'reply all' has the option of deciding which template to use, but the
'reply'  does not.  Therefore, if I just want to reply to the sender and not
the whole distribution list, then I cannot use one of my templates.

Please can this be fixed.

thanks - I was able to reproduce the problem. By the way, the new bug tracker
is here:

it's easier to use than the mozdev bugzilla (and supports screenshots).

Here is a quick fix. As luck would have it, I was already working on the
reliability of loading the popup menus on the various buttons, but through this
one found another important flaw in the name matching algorithm I used.

2 guesses - 
(a) you are using the reply all button in the header area above the email
(b) you have the reply all configured to be displayed to the left of the reply

when these conditions coincide then the bug happens. Should work with the new

...aaaand another one. Turns out adding the popup only to buttons that are not
hidden was a bad idea -  in the header area there is a "smart reply" button
that swaps out 4 different ones and hides unneeded stuff on context. So this
version adds its own template submenu to every one of them.

> This version fixes the problem.  Thanks.

There was actually a little more to this bug (we are currently at prerelease
because of the "smart reply" button in the mail header area. There is also a
problem when you add buttons to the toolbar as I currently have implemented no
detection for this event. Hopefully not too many people will be irritated by
that. :S

...I usually officially close the relevant bug when I release 2.8 - there are a
ton of other features in there but I feel it's going to be published very soon;
I had a burst of productivity :)

PS: I usually only close the bugs on release day, but it's fine, there are 2
more issues on Github that deal with vanishing menus.
