esther, could you or someone else on QA help try to reproduce this.
Keywords: nsbeta1+
Priority: -- → P1
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.7

Comment 2

The number of crashes has increased to 46 and unique reporters to 25- This
happens only on the 6.2 release build and not in the later trunk builds.

Comment 3

Created attachment 59740 [details]
Talkback reports of this crash

The crashes have all happened with either the 6.2 release build - 2001102217,
6.1 release build 2001072622 and 2001091311(just once with this build ).

Comment 4

16 years ago
It is normal that sometimes crashes happen only in external release build and
not in the Trunk builds. This is due to huge variations in the usage pattern.

Comment 5

16 years ago
If we can't reproduce this crash, perhaps we could ask one of the recent
crashers if they have a particular message that crashes and if they'd be willing
to let us test with it.

Comment 6

16 years ago
Using a 6.2 release build on Mac, I cannot reproduce this problem. We really
need to have a reproducible case.

Comment 7

16 years ago
Using the vague scenarios on the comments listed in the talkback reports I could
not reproduce this using the 10-22 or the 7-26 Netscape 6 builds on a mac os
9.1.   Others in mailqa have tried this too, no luck reproducing. 
I have sent emails to (5) of the reporters asking if this still happens and for
more information.  Now just waiting for their replys.

Please change to All, Moz doesn't "crash", the UI stalls dead in the water and
has  to be killed.  I'm on Linux, using CVS builds every several hours.

Comment 9

16 years ago
Esther was finally able to reproduce the problem using a message that include an
AppleWorks 5 attachment. I tried to forward inline or edit as new the message on
Window (My Mac is still trying to catch up with the CW7 landing from yesterday)
and that cause the App to freeze like reporter in comment #8.

The freeze problem is due to the fact I am trying to truncate a string at length
-1 in nsMsgAttachment::SetContentType.

An update:
Using a mail message sent to us by one of the reporters we were able to
reproduce the crash on messages that had an appleworks5 attachment when using
6.2 on mac (not on windows or linux).  However, repeating these tests on the
20011210 mac, win & linux builds trying to Forward this same message causes the
app to freeze not crash before a compose window comes up, so there are no
talkback reports for current builds.
This bug was Mac only on 6.2, but is cross all platforms with 12/10 trunk builds.

On Mac, we freeze also at aother location. This new patch address both freeze
issues. Now I am finally able to reproduce the crash on Mac.

I have a fix for the crash too. However, the message generated when doing a edit
dratf, edit template, edit message as new of forward as attachment will contains
invalid attachment file if the message contains an AppleDouble/AppleSingle
attachment and the resource fork of the attachment will be lost. This is a
limitation of the current support of appledouble for which I'll file a new bug.
But at least we will not crash anymore. Patch coming...

Looking at the stacktrace, this is a totally different problem, this time this
is a layout crash and not a mime one. Esther, I think it would be better to open

I agree after testing more, I think this has to do with all 5 attachments in the
