I didn't try turning it off as I didn't think of the normal case until later and had mail to get out. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have a valid certificate (I use Thawte, issued by "Personal Freemail RSA 2000.8.30") 2. In Mozilla Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings, Security on account. Turn on "Digitally sign messages"... (Encryption is Neven by default) 3. Create message and send 4. CRASH! Actual Results: Kills Mozilla application completely, all browser windows, etc. Expected Results: Sign, send message and move to Sent mail.
Do you have a stack trace or a talkback ID ?
Severity: blocker → critical
Using trunk build 20030218 on winxp I ran thru the scenario and it worked for me. However my certificate is not a Thawte cert. Does this crash every time?
Yes, it crashes everytime. I sent 3 messages, in descending levels of complexity... to the point where my last one was new message, subject=test, body=test and send. In all 3 cases it failed the same way. I was not able to try exhaustive testing protocols as I had to get work done... including didn't think to try a test turning off attaching certificate. It did send Talkback report but I don't see a history with any incident numbers. I waited for the beta hoping for a stable version... not many people use certificates so I am sure this has been test far less than most features. Hope that helps...
-- Is the computer you are running Mozilla on running an antivirus program? If so, please detail what program and what version it is. Temporarily disable the antivirus program. Then try to reproduce the problem you describe. Does the problem still occur? -- Go to Edit | Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings | Outgoing Server (SMTP) and check "never" on whether to use a secure connection (SSL). Now try to reproduce the problem. Does it still occur? -- Go to Edit | Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings. In the appropriate account, under Copies & Folders, unselect "place a copy in." Now try to reproduce the problem. Does it still occur? If this works, is this an IMAP account? Are there many messages in the sent folder? -- Is the computer behind a firewall? If so, temporarily disable it, or put the computer directly on the Internet. Can you still reproduce the problem? If not, what product and version number is the firewall? -- Delete all your SMTP server entries. Exit Mozilla. Restart Mozilla. Recreate all your SMTP server entries. Can you still reproduce the problem? -- Do you have spellchecker installed? If so, disable it or remove it. Does that solve the problem? -- Is your profile hosted on a network drive (or NFS mount)? If none of these steps work, please attach an SMTP log. The steps for creating the log can be found here: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap
I am also having this problem. Signing a message with certificate crashes mozilla when I send. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 uname -a = Linux valiant 2.4.18-18.7.x #1 Wed Nov 13 20:29:30 EST 2002 i686 unknown The certificate is from XCA (xca.sourceforge.net), but I do not think this has any bearing on the crash. The crash occurs before mozilla can copy the message to the Sent folder and (obviously) before the message is actually sent out. Turning off the option to digitally sign messages in either the compose window or the preferences allows the message to be sent. If the option to digitally sign is on, the crash is immediate. If off, all is well. Repeatability: Always! I thought this build was talkback enabled, however, this crashes so hard and fast that I never get a talkback dialogue box.
Michael Baraz, Buckley Collum: is this bug still an issue for you? Have you tried the suggestions from comment 4, and if so, what were your results? Have you upgraded to 1.3 Final, 1.3.1 or 1.4?
Hi all I'd like to mark this as works for me I've been using digital certs for signing my email on Win XP for a while now withough experiencing the problems you have mentioned Can anyone confirm if they are still having this problem with a recent Mozilla build? I'm using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050316 Simon
