Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020408 This is happening in the newest nightlies. I have never seen it before. First, whenever I go to Inbox, Mozilla claims to be busy (hourglas showing). Then occasionally when I switch between account overview and Inbox, no messages are displayed, but the overview is still shown. Then after a while (no clear way to reproduce), I don't get any new mail. I have set to check mail automatically from POP3 (which is reachable). This does not happen. Chekcking manually, by pressing the Get Msgs button or from the file menu does nothing. I have to exit Mozilla to get it back to work. pi
I have a linux debug build from yesterday and it worksforme.
If you can reproduce it more than once, could you list the steps to reproduce the bug ? Anything that might be useful for us to reproduce it.
I can not reproduce it. It just happens after some time. If there is any way to extract information at this time, I will be glad to provide anything you ask for. pi
List the actions you performed when you reproduced it. I mean you started mail then clicked where ? selected inbox and so on ..until you see it happen again. BTW, Are you on a slow connection and how fast is your machine?
That is the problem. I don't do anything in particular. I read mail and news, some web pages. The connection is to a computer at the same switch on 100 MBit. Everything unchanged to the previous situation (0.9.9 or earlier) where everything worked fine. pi
Do you read mail while downloading ?
Created attachment 78500 [details] TCPDump trace (in ASCII) of POP mail connection This demonstrates a successful POP connection but nothing is displayed to the window.
For my trace: I'm having the same problem (0.9.9 release on Win2K). I've attached an ASCII TCPDump trace (sanitized to remove IP's and password); it shows what looks to be a successful connection, including STAT and LIST but all I see now is the hourglass pointer and no mail is displayed. I can successfully connect with other POP clients.
Re Comment 6: Downloading is way to fast for reading mail at this time. Usually the problem appears (or maybe this is just when I notice it) after incativity. Re Comment 7: I have also seen the effect that new mail is not displayed, but becomes visible after you change folders. Additional remark: The server log files shows that the POP3 server was not accessed when I have this bug. At the same time I am able to check mail by different means (e.g., fetchmail) from the same machine. So this is not a server problem. pi
Created attachment 78535 [details] Access log of POP3 server This list shows the timing of the bug. I have set autmatic mail retrieval every three minutes. This seems not to work. Other intervals are due to manual retrieval. I was running Mozilla all the time. Just quitting to get new mail as seen in the logfile. pi
Switching of automatic mail retreival does not change the problem. Going back to 2002040513 solves the problem. pi
No problems so far in Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020412. Since Kyle's description is different (other OS and there is activity with the server), I mark WORKSFORME. pi

ok, good it works!
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
As of 4/15, the last few nightly builds seem to work OK for me. There seem to be other problems (e.g. occasionally the mail window won't come up at all, and I have to completely kill the mozilla process in the Windows Task Manager and restart Mozilla), but the reported problem seems to have been fixed.
