From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020427 BuildID: 2002042705 Send an email with a big attachment. Try to surf or do other things IN Mozilla while the email is sending. Result: The "sending mail progress" dialog stays in foreground and prevents any other action. I think it's a regression. Reproducible: Always
Still in Mozilla 1.0.0+ Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020531
Confirmed using Mac/2002072203. Attachment progress dialog hoards focus.

The 1.5 year old Bug 72628 certainly has a similar description (but on Windows). Although it was marked as a duplicate of Bug 72489, the description seems closer to this one. You don't need "long" attachments for this to be a real pain. All you need is a sluggish uplink connection or smtp(s)/imap(s) server. Even over my DSL line, it just took 50 seconds to wait through the "sending" and "saving copy to SENT folder" for a 2K message. Typically it is more like 30 seconds, but that's a long time to just twiddle your thumbs when you could be doing something more useful.
Mozilla 1.1b nightly build Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020901 Anyway, this build can do other actions even it is slow.
happens on all platforms.
After a quick test with Seamonkey (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20070221 SeaMonkey/1.1.1), it seems to be fixed.
