When posting/replying to a newsgroup (news.mozilla.org) and text is pasted (?) to the message, then the message is not posted. Reproduce: - go to news.mozilla.org and open a Reply window to a post (don't send yet) - go to local folders, find a mail, copy some text (CTRL-C) - paste text into Reply message - press Send button - "To:" and Subject lines are grayed out for a looong time. - send fails with "connection to newsserver failed" message. - sending a second time does NOT yield above error message, compose window goes away (as if msg was posted), but message is NOT posted. This is on a clean install (uninstall, delete all but plugins, delete mozver.dat) using 2002-09-24, win98. (could this be related to TagZilla? - which may have some remnants left in my profile)
Created attachment 100555 [details] Text I pasted where post didn't go through. Amusing and useful text, even if you could care less about this bug. ;)
this worksforme with build 2002-09-24-08 on Windows 2000. See my message in news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.test news://news.mozilla.org:email@example.com
Created attachment 100723 [details] Another message (here: source) in my "Drafts" folder that I cannot post
This bug only seems to occur on these News-servers: - secnews.netscape.com AND news.mozilla.org and NOT on my other News-server: - News.CIS.DFN.DE :-\
Peter, by any chance do you have multiple Mail or News windows open when you're attempting to post? We have a bug on this, I'm looking for it.
I only have one mail window open when this occurs.
I just created an entirely new profile just to test this, including recreating all my mail and NEWSGROUPS. The error *still occurs*. :( The only files I copied over from my old profile were: xxxxx.s, xxxxx.w, bookmarks.html, cert7.db, cookies.txt, cookperm.txt, key3.db, user.js, rules.dat (from my imap inbox). I also imported all my address books. This seems to only happen when I have in some way altered (i.e., create ENTER'S) within the quoted text. > bla bla bla bla bla bla > bla bla bla bla bla bla | <-- [hit <ENTER> here] > bla bla bla bla bla bla
Peter, can you generate a logfile for us, please? Instructions can be found at: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#NNTP Thanks.
I just had a chance to revisit this bug, and to retest it. I can no longer reproduce this bug. Resolving as WORKSFORME.
