I get massive hard drive thrashing and lack of responsiveness after closing a
msg compose window or after sending an e-mail message (2002-02-24, winNT).

Suggest to change subject line:
Several Mozilla windows take a very long time to close (hard-drive thrashing)

Also suggest to add keywords (, could you?):
nsbeta1, nsbranch, nsCatFood, perf, regression

I'd just like at add that on my Win2000 I get this as well (since a couple of
nighly builds) both when closing a browser window and a mail window (for example
after clicking on "send") and it's not just hard drive thrashing. The CPU-usage
goes up to 100% for a couple of seconds as well.

Hope this gets fixed soon.

Just to make sure you know why this bug-report doesn't get a lot of attention:
this doesn't happen on every Win2000. I just upgraded my motherboard and
processor and had to install Win2000 again and now Mozilla-windows do close quickly.

I discovered it on NT no W2K.

I get this on WIN NT 4, SP6.  This started happening on milestone 9.9.  I did
not have this problem on 9.8.  My cpu goes to 100 percent and the disk drive is
in use, for about 8 to 10 seconds after I close a browser window.  It doesnt
matter how many browser windows that I have open.  It does not happen on a tab

Still happens with 0.9.9, first occured in a nightly build somewhen after 0.9.8 .

Ever confirmed: true
removing useless keywords, adding the correct one. 

Can you try with a new profile?
Keywords: mozilla0.9.9, perf → hang

perf is a valid keyword IMHO for this bug, as well as mozilla1.0, as this bug 
makes the browser much less useable for me.
Setting target milestone to 1.0.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.9 → mozilla1.0

New profile does not help.

Asa's a great guy, but I doubt he'll fix this bug ;-)  Can someone help triage 
this to the developer?  I see this only on Windows, not my Linux or Mac box.  
Is this some kind of xpcom registry shutdown problem?  I've looked through all 
of the keyword 'hang' bugs, and this seems the earliest/closest to what I'm 
I saw this only with a bad profile (thats 4th time that I must repair my
profile) and this is wfm on win2k and 0404.

and please be sure that you installed mozilla not over an oldr build...

BTW: don't set the "target milestone" if you are not the assigned developer and
this will never fixed in browser general.
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0 → ---
I've installed the nightly 0402 build on a blank Windows NT 4.0 SP 6
System - and the bug occurs there, but not in W2K.
And the profile is new too.

this sounds a lot like bug 125100.  Marking as dup of it.
