From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020316 BuildID: 2002031608 When I click Get Msgs button in MailNews, Mozilla hangs. Also (probably related), the thread pane is blank. It doesn't show any message headers. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open MailNews 2.Click on subscribed Newsgroup 3. Actual Results: No Hang, headers are shown. Expected Results: Mozilla shows no headers when the newsgroup is clicked. Hangs when Get Msgs is clicked
I'm not sure if it's related, but I did enable the "Keep only unread messages" option in the "Ofline & Disk Space" section of the prefs before seeing this problem. Disabling the option does not fix the problem, though.
I am seeing this currently with alt.music.mp3 on Linux, trunk CVS. NNTP log and profile forthcoming
OS: Windows 2000 → All
Created attachment 91301 [details] profile during attempt to open alt.music.mp3 using news.freeserve.co.uk, profile of Mozilla whilst it is looping at 100% CPU. I didn't get any output in my nntp log for some reason.
when I remove the .msf file I don't have the problem. I suspect the file got corrupt after I ran out of disk space during a previous session ?
.msf file : http://movementarian.org/alt.music.mp3.msf.gz bug 134866 is possibly a dupe of this.
I experienced the same problem when subscribing to a large newsgroup (13000 messages). While Mozilla was downloading headers, it was using 100% CPU and the UI was completely unresponsive (no redraw). Given that I have a 512 kbit DSL connection, this operation really should not be CPU-bound ! (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826)
W2KSP3, Mozilla 13b 20030210 ( Maybe this is no longer "NEW" :-) I'm having the same problem, only up to 99% CPU (as low as 87% when other taskbar resident process is running.) This is a new setup, with freshly re-installed OS and clean first install of Mozilla 1.3b. There is only one irregularity in the setup of Mozilla, which may give a programmer a clue about where the bug comes in. Yesterday, while reinstalling all my applications, before I had figured out (again) how to set up Mozilla to use my mail profile and data saved on disk, I was checking the Web for updates to WordPerfect. At that time I got onto the NG fine in the temporary default profile Mozilla had set up for me, and posted a question. Then, after I got my old Mozilla profile set up (and deleted the default profile), I cannot get any messages from the NG; trying to see any messages hangs Mozilla (but not necessarily other programs already running).
Followup to Comment #8 I set up a W2K user account for myself, invoked Mozilla Profile Manager, deleted the default profile and associated files, and directed PM to the old profile. Other NGs work OK, and I can subscribe to new NGs, as I just subscribed again to netscape.mozilla.public.general. There is a problem at the Corel NG. I can subscribe to the Quattro NG, but it does not list any messages. (I don't think I've used the context menu for "Get Messages for Account" on that NG, and I'm afraid that maybe it will hang now if I try that. When unsubscribed from and resubscribed to the WordPerfect NG, I got the same hangup.
Followup to Comment #8 and Comment #9 I deleted the Corel account and re-subscribed, and now it is working.
WD: Can you reproduce this with current builds ?
