OpenPGP Setup Wizard won't progress past "Change Your Email Settings To Make OpenPGP Work More Reliably"

Even with default the setting of "Yes", the next button responds (responds to mouse click) but the screen does not progress to whatever screen is next. An error corresponding to each mouse click in the jsconsole is:

Timestamp: 1/20/2014 4:20:27 AM
Error: NS_ERROR_XPC_BAD_CONVERT_JS: Could not convert JavaScript argument arg 0 [nsIPromptService.alert]

  • I cannot reproduce this. Are you sure you're using Enigmail v1.6?

    Yes. Tools->Add-ons->Enigmail 1.6

    Is there a quick setup guide to take the place of the wizard for those in a hurry?

    I had the same experience yesterday. Thanks to Patrick Brunschwigs instructions up here I was able to find out what has happened:
    During the installation, Enigmail chosses it's OpenPGP-Binary to use. I don't know why, but it choose "gpgv2.exe" as the binary to use. Unfortunately, gpgv2.exe is for verification only - and not for signing or other tasks. And - it doesn't understand the parameter "--charset" which is used while changing the email preferences.
    Therefore, in the debug-Log I was able to see that gpgv2.exe complains about the --charset-parameter. Since the Wizard apparently fails to recognise this error, the screen stays the same.
    As soon as I changed the binary-to-use from gpgv2.exe to gpg2.exe, everything worked fine.

    Could you please check wether you use the correct binary? thanks!
