From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510 BuildID: 2002051006 Clicking on "Spell" after composing a message (or having automatic spellchecking enabled in the preferences and then trying to send a message), freezes the application. The Windows Task Manager says that Mozilla uses 100% CPU time, and I have to kill the Mozilla process. I restarted Mozilla and tried to compose various messages, each time killing the app when I go to spell. I used to have a spellchecker installed using a downloaded xpi several versions of Mozilla ago. Could that be causing some problems? Can I reinstall Mozilla from scratch to make sure no old downloaded .xpi are causing problems? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a message 2. Click on "Spell" button or chose "Check Spelling" from Options menu Actual Results: Mozilla freezes, taking up 100% CPU
Reassign to varada. Varada, please take a look at it asap...
I am using a build from 20020512 and I am not able to reproduce this problem. Leo do you know what build you were using earlier - I could try to go thru the same steps.
I'm sorry - it looks like I had an old spellchecker from spellchecker.mozdev.org, which I forgot about, and it was freezing Mozilla. I thought that Mozilla RC2 shipped with a new spellchecker... therefor my confusion. I appologize. I deleted all the Mozilla files, reinstalled Mozilla, the spellchecker in now completely gone, and therefor the problem with it. :) Thank you for your immediate attention and great work!
