Exclamation Mozilla Mail - Compose problem

When I start Mozilla Mail, everything works fine. But since 4/5 days - I can't Compose mails!
When I click Compose - a fullscreen windows starts and then all mozilla programs close (including the fullscreen window).
When I start Mozilla Mail from terminal
mozilla -mail
And click Compose (and the same thing happens) - this errors appear:

Gdk-ERROR **: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
serial 3273 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0
Gdk-ERROR **: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
serial 3275 error_code 9 request_code 70 minor_code 0

I'm not sure how can I have insufficient resources - I have 256 MB RAM and 500Hz.
Maybe it's because I recently upgraded 128MB into 256MB? How can I see how much RAM does Linux detect, and do I have to make a larger Swap Partition?

But I don't think that this is a problem - Compose works well with other users...

P.S. I have Mandrake 9.0

try deleting the .mozilla folder, then when you reopen mozilla it will make a fresh folder. Also, i must of already said this a few times today but if you are using mozilla and netscape on same account they will share the same folder and cause all kinds of strange things to occur. If the folder thing doesnt work try to reinstall mozilla to rule out something wrong with the program.
