From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020610 BuildID: 1.1 alpha mail client hangs and is completely unresponsive after an attempt to forward mail. the mail mail seems to go out, and the GUI displays the appropriate `client working' type dialog for the out going forwarded mail.. but as soon as that dialog closes the client hangs. it affects all the mozilla clients in that they all become unresponsive and forces a kill -9 [or equivelent] to all running mozilla processes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start mozilla 2.use ctrl-2 to start mail client 3.login to mail server 4.click on sent mail folder in primary mail 5.double-click any single mail in sent box to open 6.click 'forward' menu tile on newly opened mail 7.use ctrl-'return' to send mail 8.`working' dialog appears as mail is sent. 9.all mozilla GUIs are now hung. Actual Results: i must close all unresponsive mozilla client GUIs.. sometimes [once or twice] i have to restart X. it appears that mail is actually sent properly.. so other than having to recover by closing/restarting mozilla, it seems ok. Expected Results: not to hang after mail send. allow user to proceed [i.e. close forwarded mail if i want to, browse `inbox'.. etc] i am using enlightenment 16.5/RedHat 7.3, may be related, however.. this issue did not appear until 1.1. alpha.. i use enlightenment/mozilla/mozilla-mail daily in my work as an engineer for the past 14 months.
worksforme linux trunk cvs 2002-07-08. Reporter, as 1.1a is a month old now, could you test this on a nightly build <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/>? Does this happen when forwarding any message, or a specific (type of) message?
ok, just downloaded and tried the latest nightly-build [Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1a+) Gecko/20020708].. same behavior.. client hangs. however, it looks like i may have missed a step before: .. 7.use ctrl-'return' to send mail 8.`working' dialog appears as mail is sent. >> 8a. when client reverts to orginating forwarded message, click File->Close, or window-manager `close window' widget.. 9.all mozilla GUIs are now hung. .. i can still drag the window interface around, but it stops refreshing and is unresponsive. perhaps you can help me find some error logs i can tail?
still wfm (sawfish 1.0.1, debian testing, fwiw) :\
works for me Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20030112
i am now using: Mozilla 1.3a Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212 i follow the same steps in the below bug i reported and the client works perfectly. fwiw i never was able to figure out what was wrong before, i just stopped ever forwarding mail. mozilla is a great client! you guys rock!
