And which build worked before you installed this one ?
Do you installed it in a complete empty directory and have you also tried a new
profile ?

I had a 20030526 build working before this bug showed up.  No, I didn't install
in a clean directory.  I tried several builds after the report, but still had
the problem until I tried 2003071708, which WFM...  Unfortunately, it's probably
been at least two weeks since I last tried a new build, so I can't give you a
good idea of when the problem actually went away.  I did notice that the
installer seems a bit different now, maybe there's a relationship there...

I'm getting this as well with the 1.5beta release. More details are on the 
(duplicate) Bug 209084.

Correction: Bug 217545
Please try this:
uninstall Mozilla and delete (manually) :
c:\program Files\Mozilla.org\Mozilla (except the plugins subdirectory)
and 
c:\program Files\common Files\Mozilla\

and reinstall Mozilla.

Actually, I already did that. On my dup, I forgot to specify that it occured on 
a clean install.
run "mozilla -profilemanager" and create an additional test profile.

Joke's on me. I had conflicting GREs. Suggest move to Resolved Invalid.

I can confirm that behaviour with 
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030828

I saw that in some other 1.5 TRUNK versions I tested until now.
This problem is not 100% reproducible. I used a.m. 1.5 Mozilla yesterday without
any problem. Today same version crashes 100% when I try to open mail, all the
same whether I try from broser-window with Mail-Button or whether I open mail
directly from the desktop with "mozilla.exe -mail".

I sent TB23185606K and TB 23185583M

Thera are further Talkbacks in duplicated bugs.

And now it works again :-\

I sometimes think (but I can not prove it) that the use of MOZILLA 1.4 for mail
after a 1.5 crash sometimes "repairs" the problem. After use of 1.4 for mail, I
(sometimes) am able to use 1.5, too.

I use the mozdev addon "Mnenhy".

Any suspect that this might cause the problem?

Rainer
Mnenhy shouldn't do that anymore since 0.2, but I'll look into this. ;-)

Duping against bug 206199; I'll put all mentioned talkback data there.
