From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020524 BuildID: 2002052414 Mail and/or news crashes when the application attempts to verify the addresse with an LDAP server. When crashing, no message is generated (not even a 'signal 11' message). When 'Address autocompletion' is enabled, Mozilla crashes after the 1st character of a mail address is entered. If this feature is disabled, Mozilla crashes after pressing the 'send' button. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Have Mozilla use an LDAP server and enable 'Address autocompletion in the preferences 2.Compose a news or mail message (e.g. click 'Send Link' in the file menu) 3.Enter an e-mail address for a recipient. Alternate reproduction steps: 1. Have Mozilla use an LDAP server 2. Compose an e-mail 3. Enter the address of the recipient 4. click 'Send' Actual Results: Mozilla crashes: All windows disappear and no Mozilla processes are running anymore. Expected Results: Upon completion of the e-mail address one can send the mail message or post the news article. Alternate expected result (from alternate reproduction steps): Upon pressing the 'Send' button, the mail message is sent, closing the Compose window. This bug reproduces 100% on Solaris 8 SU 7 without additional patches.
I have discovered that the bug is also related to imported Netscape 4.7x settings. If I create an account based on my Netscape 4.7 settings, the mailer crashes as described. If I do not use the Netscape settings, the mailer does not crash.
does this still happen with 1.1beta?
