I currently have 6 mail filters active, they worked fine so far. Today I tried
to add a new one. Upon pressing "New" the sand clock is shown. The same happens
to me upon pressing "Edit" or double clicking a rule. I am no longer able to
switch to other instances of Mozilla (e.g. Browser). Pressing alt-ctrl-del gives
me the list of applications, it says "Message filters is not responding" (my
message is in German). Killing the no longer responding task kills all of Mozilla. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Message Filters dialog
2. Double click a rule or press "New"
3. That´s it

Actual Results:  
The sand clock is shown, all of Mozilla is no longer usable.

Expected Results:  
Open the rule for editing

No error message, no problem to restart Mozilla again

Reporter: Are you still seeing this problem with a recent build? Could you try
locating xul.mfl, deleting it (it will be automatically regenerated when you
next start mozilla) and reporting if this fixes the problem?

I have many filters--perhaps 100+.  Has been working fine.  Don't know what
changed.  Filters still operate.  Can't use any of the "management" buttons
except to display the log.

No response for the past four months. Marking WFM.
Reporter: if you can reproduce this with a recent build (Mozilla 1.4 or higher),
with the suggested fix from comment 1 not having any effect, please reopen.
