User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Occasionally (perhaps once a month when used daily), when I check a newsgroup, Mozilla appears to "forget" all the message headers it has downloaded in the past, and insists on downloading the whole lot again before it will let me read any messages. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Expand a news server tree, to view the list of newsgroups subscribed to; 2.Click on any newsgroup name Actual Results: Normally, it does exactly what it should do: downloads any new newsgroup headers waiting, combines these with those downloaded previously, and displays them. Occasionally however, it will ignore the headers downloaded previously, and give a message such as "There are [big number!] new message headers to download for this newsgroup", with the options to download all headers or download a given number. If I select one of these, it starts downloading all the headers from scratch again, or if I click cancel, then the message headers window becomes empty. Expected Results: What it normally does: just download the new headers and not the ones it has already got as well.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest nightly (or even 1.7.3)? If not, the bug has probably been fixed and can be closed. Thanks.
I've not noticed it recently but then i'm using Thunderbird now. I'll keep an eye out for it - since I'm no longer using dial-up internet access it is less of a bother to me now.
WFM with Moz 1.7.3. Marking so. Reporter, if you see this bug again in Thunderbird, please open a new bug. Thanks.
