2. Press the order by thread button (beside the "subject" in the upper right pane).

Actual Results:  
Mozilla mail/news and browser freezes.

Expected Results:  
The articles should have been ordered in threads.

still doesn't work in:
Mozilla 1.5b
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030713

A thread that has been previously ordered by threading does not freeze mozilla
but an unordered thread does.

Still happens with:
Mozilla 1.5b
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030716
I deleted all my .msf files and my XUL.masf file.

still happens in:
Mozilla 1.5b
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030724
but it only happens on some folders.
It has worked on every folder ~15k that I have tried but it freezes on ~1M folders.
I waited an hour so I think it is frozen but can I see if it is actually doing
anything useful?

It is only some folders.
It works fine on the 3M folder I tried.
