This wasn't an issue or a problem until this week and no software or reg entries have been altered during this period; It just started locking up. As my luck has it, I have a dual processor, so Mozilla is only killing one processor and not bringing my entire system to a halt... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start e-mail client 2. Click on Tools > Search > Messages 3. Watch the CPU spin as nothing else happens... Actual Results: Endless Process Looping Expected Results: Produced a dialog box of search options No talkback data gathered as Mozilla never actually crashes. Oddly, if I attempt to open the Java console, running 1.4se, the second processor enters the loop.
Reporter: Please close mozilla and rename the file "xul.mfl" in your mozilla profile.
Splendid! That fixed it. Can someone educate me as to what that file does and perhaps why this occurred as we have another less frequent MZ hangs and I'm wondering if this might be the general 'cure' and if so, are there any negative side-effects that I should be cautious of?
Please zip the file (the old one)and send it to email@example.com This file is a cache for Mozilla UI language "XUL" (no personal data) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 169777 ***
