This is an issue for people who run their own mailserver off a dynamic dns account but keep the same hostname through dyndns (or other service) and their lease renews with a different IP address (I was using IMAP). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open mail, access account 2. have mailserver change ip addresses 3. try to access mail again Actual Results: mozilla return "not found" errors regarding the mailserver Expected Results: instead of relying on a cached version of the DNS it should have done a fresh lookup which would have resolved successfully
does mozilla actually "crash" ?
Summary: crash if mail server chamges IP address → crash if mail server chamges IP address
