OS/2 build 2003060209

I often leave Mozilla running in background for a day.
But next day it's unable to connect any site or POP3 server. So I'm forced to
restart it to make it worked.

To reproduce:
1. Run Mozilla Navigator
2. Ensure it works fine
3. Leave it running in background for a day
4. Try to connect any site

WFM. I often leave it running 3 or 4 days. Using vacpp 2003060712 at the moment.

I've just got the problem with 2003060809 build.

No errors were produced. The sites were simply being loaded forever, and
throbber was throbbing and throbbing...
I've tried to enter http://localhost in a new tab: result is the same with
status line stuck at "Resolving host localhost..."
Probably, host resolving was dead in Mozilla. Other internet applications
including "host" command worked fine.

max: whenever mozilla gets into this state, you might try toggling the
online/offline button to see if that has any effect.

-> mkaply since this bug is for OS/2

Yeah, indeed switching to Offline and then back to Online resolves the problem.

Darin, has this ever been seen in the past on other platforms?

But I cannot get Mail back to life. Mozilla doesn't connect to mail servers
(silently, with no errors of any kind). Trick with going offline/online doesn't
But at the same time news-servers work fine.

MailNews part of the problem seems to be bug 173924.
Depends on: 173924

I have seen this, too, but not yet with 1.4 RC1 or 1.4 RC2. I'm using the 4.3.2
IP stack (I can dig out the details if need be), though other IP connectivity
seems unaffected. Offline/online toggle helps sometimes, other times I am forced
to kill the process (exiting doesn't shut it down completely, which may be the
real bug) and restart Moz.

I haven't seen this on other platforms.

I'm using latest TCP/IP as well. Precisely speaking:

Version numbers of TCP/IP protocol drivers:
   SOCKETS.SYS: 6.3100
   AFOS2.SYS:   6.3100
   AFINET.SYS:  6.3100

Do you still see this problem?

The bug seems to have gone in recent builds. But while testing for this one,
I've got another illustration of bug 195960.

Marking as WFM.
