Mozilla destroys and/or loose configuration informations when I close it with disk without much space left
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020313 BuildID: 20020313 Mozilla tried to save config files when closed. There was not enough space to disk. Config files were corrupted. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.run mozilla 2.fill your disk 3.stop mozilla 4.run mozilla - enjoy Actual Results: corrupted configs unusable ~/.mozilla I have to reconfigure everything. It's especially anoying for the mailboxes. Expected Results: Not destroying configs is a good practice. If the system HAVE to write configs again and again, it should: _ write to a new file with a temp name _ check the writing is done without an error and only then : _ delete the old file _ rename the new file If I'm using a mailbox, it would be good to stop the mozilla shutdown and warn be before corrupting the files it tries to update. The straighforward data writing without space checking (or any error) caused a mailbox content (partial) loss.
