It would seem as of 0.9.9 and all current nightlies (Windows and Linux x86 and
PPC tested.)  fail to run the commands within Netscape webmail.  Delete and move
to folder do nothing.  This only true as of 0.9.9 and nightlies.  I'm thinking
this is a javascript problem.  This site works with other browsers (Netscape 4.)

Also, more important and the errors below, you can't send mail.

Here is an error I get when moving to a folder:

Error: GetCookie is not defined
Source File:
Line: 105

And here are more from a delete:

Error: newImage is not defined
Source File:
Line: 477

Error: handleLowColor is not defined
Source File:
Line: 469

Reassigning to Browser-General until we can get more information.
These types of errors are usually caused by mistakes in the script,
not by bugs in JS Engine. Compare similar error in this bug:

bug 107170 " - cookie fails, site useless because of bad JS"

The other possibility is this: do you have any Preferences settings
that would block cookies? That would also cause errors like these.

In the meantime, I get a Site Not Found error when I try to go 
to the given URL, Is there a typo?

Also: since this site require a login, would it be possible
for someone to set up a test account, say with 

                      user= mozilla
                      pwd = bugzilla

Finally, compare bug 133977, "Netscape mail (send) fails on 2002032708"
We might want to dupe one of these bugs against the other one -

Javascript is turn ON.  I accept cookies and the other bug appears to be simular.

wfm with win2k build 20020412.. (message send, moved, deleted)

Do you block something in edit\preferences\advanced\Scripting... ?
If not: Can you try a new profile with "mozilla -profilemanager" ?

If someone needs a test account : mail me (i have an unused Account)

I have observed this bug as well in moving from mozilla 0.9.7 to 0.9.8 . This
bug is also present in 0.9.9 .

I could not sent e-mail and I could not move or delete files from the main
webmail page.

However when I created a new profile with "mozilla.exe -profilemanager" the
problem was resolved.

This problem has been corrected with RC1.  Did try the 0.9.9 on Linux again and
this problem seems to have corrected itself.
