In the mozilla calendar program, wenever I want to disable or enable a calendar
the program simply stops responding, just like if a program is about to crash
but then all the Mozilla programs crash and after  about 20 seconds everything
is back to normal and the action I wanted to do is done.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Mozilla Calendar
2. At the upper left corner of the screen go to the "Calendars" tab
3. Enable or disable any of your calendars

Actual Results:  
All opened mozilla programs stop responding for 25 seconds. and after that it
enables or disables that calendar like I wanted.

Expected Results:  
enable or disable that calendar instantly

I don't have the service pack! Service packs ruin Windows... Makes work slower
and crashes a lot. My buid is 2600.

Have you tried this with a new calendar as well? Create a new calendar ( with no
events ) and disable/enable it. If that works add a simple event and try again.
If that works too, attach the calendar file which causes the crash ( when
enabled ) to this bug. If you run Mozilla -console you will get more info in the
console window. See if there is anything useful printed out in the console at
the time of the crash.

This bug is obsolete. Mostafa or the reporter should close it if it's now
reproducible. I cann't reproduce it at my win2k (700mhz) box.

This is reproducable with large ics files that have a lot of recurring events.
Do you have any files that exhibit this bug you can attach? Should this bug be marked as new since you 
can duplicate it?

If this bug is about Calendar being unstable with large calendars, then this bug
should be duped against bugs which say exactly that.

I agree with Simon, if this bug is related to large .ics files, it should be
marked as a duplicate of bug 198142.  Reporter, have you tried the suggestion of
starting with a blank Calendar and trying to reproduce this bug?

No response from reporter.  The only reason this wasn't closed awhile ago was
due to Mostafa's comment about large .ics files, so I'm marking it a duplicate
of that bug, just as sipaq suggested.
