Reading certain mail causes crash
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211 This only happens with one particular message, which is devoid of any attachements & containsno HTML! I am going to attach the backtrace I get when trying to read it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Fire up MailNews 2. Click on this email in the list of messages. Actual Results: Mozilla crashes. Expected Results: It should display the message.
Do you use a XFT build ?
Yes, a GTK2 one to be specific.
This one was produced using 1.3 final release.
Alright, I ran it with --sync & produced yet another stack trace. Hope this one is more useful.
OK, this is very strange. This has suddenly & inexplicably stopped being a problem! All I can think of that I changed was to add a 2nd Usenet account (& subscribe to 2 groups) and change the Inbox folder properties to use UTF-8 by default but to stop overriding the charset specified by the message. After that the message that have been crashing Moz no longer crash it & display just fine. Suspecting that maybe the change to the charset preferences was what did the trick, I set those back to the way they were, restarted Moz & read a few of the problme messages but they still do not cause a problem. Since I cannot see any reason why adding a new News account should have had any effect whatsoever on this situation, I am not going to undo that because I really don't want to reconfigure it.
-->resolving so (since there is also no possibility to reproduce it anymore)...
