Mozilla crach when I selected all (Ctrl+A) messages in a mail folder and deleted
them.  I do that very regularly, for messages from mailing lists delivered to
their own mail folder, an had no problems before.  The one thing that was
different this time is that I had been looking around and
had been playing with their CSS menus and CSS customizations.  This was the
first time I visited a web site with multiple "View->Use Style->*" entries, and
I have tried them all.

I suspect a relation between the crach and manipulating CSS stypes.....

i have seen this crash without ever doing something with css. i have a mail 
folder with many messages (1500+) and first saw this crash when marking them all 
and clicking the "junk" button. this left mailnews with 0% cpu but 

i thought mailnews could just not handle that much mails at once and marked 
about 100 mails and clicked the "junk" button -> worked. i selected the next 100 
mails, clicked, worked.

Pierre Baumard (and others), this bug is apparently impossible to duplicate in 
version 1.4: it is no longer possible to mark news messages as junk.  For news 
accounts, the Junk column does not function, the Mark As menu disabled the 
junk-related items, and the Mark tool doesn't even offer junk items.

If this bug is still an issue, upgrading will solve it.  =>WFM
