Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20030210

As far as I can tell, any use of the View Source command (through the menu or
with the Ctl-U shortcut) would cause Mozilla 1.2 to hang.  

By hang I mean: no source code displayed; no repainting of the screen or
response to mouseclicks or keystrokes; switching to any open Mozilla component
had no effect; the Win98 End Task command, applied to Mozilla, would warn me
with the "application not responding" prompt.

I use View Source on spam messages that I want to report to SpamCop, so maybe it
was something about the spams I was getting, but I doubt it.  I was also hanging
Mozilla when I tried to View Source on web pages - at that point I gave up on
release 1.2.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mail message.
2. Choose View | Message Source
3.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla would totally hang up.  No further displays or responses.

Expected Results:  
Displayed a new window showing the ASCII text that came in over the wire (as in
previous Mozilla releases).

WFM with build 200303030308 on Windows XP SP1.

Karl - Mozilla 1.2 is too old a build to report bugs against
now. The problem you are reporting may well have been fixed already. 

Could you please download a recent nightly build from
<ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/>, and then let us know if you 
still see this problem?

Thanks,

Stefan
