Build: 2003012105 , RedHat 8.0 Reproduce: 1. set up a POP account 2. press gett-messages button (or do ctrl-T) 3. status bar reflects various communication stages, but the last message which remains after closing the connection is: Sending request to pop.server.name ... or Transferring data from pop.server.name... Should be: the message should be "done." (apparently there is no communication ongoing and the mozilla logo in upper right corner is *not* being animated). The status-bar message is properly updated after some time, but I was unable to decide what causes it to update. This may be somehow related to bug 170668 in browser component. I'll post screenshots here soon.
Created attachment 112508 [details] Example of wrong message after finishing the check for new mail The status bar message should probably be: "Done."
Created attachment 112509 [details] Another screenshot with wrong message The status bar message should probably be "Done."
seeing this too : Win 2k, SP3 and Moz 2003012315
Also true for me: Win2k, build 2003012305 (which is two days younger).
It seems that all bug 166428, bug 185547, bug 190044 and bug 190442 are caused by the same problem, which is neither Mail/News or browser component. Could anybody with better insight confirm this suspection and file a new general bug?
