I can not reproduce this. I was using the official ns7 build. I opened the mail preferences dialog. Once it was open, I was unable to click anywhere in the browser. Pressing the window manager UI close control didn't work. Pressing the Escape keyboard key didn't work. However, the application was not hung. I was still able to switch between open browser windows, and redraw worked everywhere. But nothing reacted, probably because that pref dialog is modal. I think the following message on my console might have come from Mozilla: Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkdnd.c: line 623 (gtk_drag_get_data): assertion `widget != NULL' failed.
You probably already assumed, but to clarify: I had to kill the process the hard way.
Summary: Modal dialog does no longer react → Modal dialog does no longer react and makes browser unusable
I never saw this again, and apparently, nobody else did. Marking worsforme.
