From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20011019 Netscape6/6.2 BuildID: 2002040103 Frequently (about 30% of the time), the new message window hangs when I open up an email by double clicking on the subject line. If I try, I can increase the reproduceability by double clicking quickly on a message that's never been opened. When the bug occurs, a new message window is opened up, and it says "Loading Document" in the status bar, but the window never renders the message content, and it never finishes "loading". I think that this bug never occurs if the content of the email has already been rendered in the preview pane. In other words, I think this bug is 100% repeatable, if you're quick enough to double click on the subject line before it has a chance to render the messages content in the preview pane. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Double click quickly on a subject line in the email client. 2.An email message window comes up, but hangs, without rendering the message content. Actual Results: 1.Double click quickly on a subject line in the email client. 2.An email message window comes up, but hangs, without rendering the message content. Expected Results: 1.Double click quickly on a subject line in the email client. 2.An email message window comes up, with the message content rendered in the window. I'm not sure that this is IMAP specific, but I would guess that it is. Also, I've never filed a bug on the email client, and while I did make some effort to search for this bug in existing reports, I was not able to find a bug that matched. Since this bug is pretty heinous (in terms of irritation upon regular IMAP users), I would have guessed that somebody's filed it already (unless there's something very specific about my configuration that makes it occur). It certainly would be nice to get this fixed.
I tried hard - no success in reproducing.
I might have screwed up in submitting this one. I may have made this repeat based on a February build, when I thought I was testing from yesterday's build. I'll do some more testing today (being more careful about the version), and see if I can get it to repeat.
Karen, is it your area?

I've spent a couple of days using build 2002020406, and I can indead repeat this bug. It does seem to be more difficult to make recur, but it does happen at least a few times a day. As originally described, it is most likely to repeat on an email that I have never read before.
20020913 trunk build on Win2K Resolve this bug marking WFM. Please reopen it if happening again.
