From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020409 BuildID: 2002040908 When fetchmail is retrieving mail, an attempt to Get Msgs in the movemail account chamges the cursor over the mail window into a "waiting" small watch face icon, and does not retrieve the mail. This state does not clear. Closing and re-opening the mail window has no effect. Only closing and reopening mozilla clears the state. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Wait until some external system indication that fetchmail is retrieving mail 2.Click Get Msgs icon in the main mail window 3. Actual Results: Icon changes to "wait" icon and remains in that state. Mail is not retrieved. Expected Results: Mail is retrived and icon rapidly returns to normal state Reproducibility is given as "sometimes", but it has already happened to me twice, and I have only noticed this in the past two days.
A dup of Bug 135658 ? What does your pop server response while fetchmail is running and another program tries to get the mails at the same time? (see telnetlog of 135658) something like that? :/
I have jsut seen this (in 2002041008) when no mail was being fetched (although it is possible that fetchmail was checking an empty server at the time, though I doubt it.) Same symptoms - attempt to Get Msgs fails, and leaves the "wristwatch" cursor. Adrian, movemail doesn't go to the server, just to the local mailbox after fetchmail has retrieved the mail, so I don't think it is the same sort of bug.
This one may not be in the right category. I have just seen the same symptom after *sending* a mail message. It seems to be happening much too frequently to simply be co-inciding with fetchmail's 10 minute poll activity.
This problem MAY be related to the more general navigation failures that keep cropping up, e.g. 127059. I just recently had to shut down my mail windows, and trying to re-open the main mail window by using the envelope icon on the bottom of the browser window did nothing. I had to restart mozilla to get things working again.
This situation seems to be cleared by selecting another account, then re-selecting the movemail account at the main mail window account panel.
I haven't seen this for a couple of weeks. I'm marking it as WORKSFORME.
