Mail, iChat and Safari text editor issues. Also cannot use reply button.
Several problems that appear to be related to the install of the 10.4.2 combo upgrade that I did about two weeks ago.
First noticed with Mail that 'reply' and 'reply all' buttons do not respond when clicked. 'Forward' and 'New' will respond and bring up new message to which addresses and subject can be added but hitting spacebar in subject line seems to insert two spaces rather than one. Typing space or carriage return in main text box results in inability to type anymore text. Familiar error beep occurs instead. Finally, 'send' button does not respond in any case.
Similar problems with any text box in Safari. Single press of spacebar results in double space being inserted, full stop also inserts two. Buttons seem OK here.
iChat very interesting. Already have a host of unrelated problems here. The application does not pick up my DV cam and I cannot see some contacts online and vice vers, these where present before the error in the topic though. In relation to other problems when trying to type message I get error on typing a space. One worded messages seem to send fine.
iChat Internal Error
Invalid parameter not satisfying: (index >= 0) && (index < (_itemArray ? CFArrayGetCount((CFArrayRef)_itemArray) : 0))
Hopefully this may yeild some clues to all problems.
Have noted similar posts about problems in Mail but do not think that reinstalling this will solve the problems with the other two apps. Could anyone suggest any other fixes? Or where the root of this problem may lie?
