User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030830
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030830

G4 QS (02) 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 10.2.6 all current (cron jobs, rep. perms, etc.
3 HDs, 3 volumes in each, Vol 1=OS X,  Vol 2=9.2.2,  Vol 3=Storage & Scratch
Drive B, vol 3, contains Browsers:  Mozilla, Camino, Firebird. These are in a
folder called "Everything", along with all 3rd party utilities/apps.

Drive A, Vol 1 is Startup. This disk's User folder has a symlink to the
Everything Folder.  This entire drive was backed up using CCC on 8/29/03 to
Drive B, Vol 1.

Replaced older Mozilla version with above version.  Launched Moz.  Mail should
have appeared, but Navigator appeared.  Opened mail window, found that Inbox,
Sent, contain NO MAIL RECEIVED AFTER 6/20/03 !!!  The installation or launching
of this version wiped out my email received after 6/20/03.  This makes no sense
to me.  This has never happened before.  I have replaced Mozilla via drag n drop
into this same folder a number of times in the past year, with no ill effects. 
This lost mail is not on any of my hard drives. Using Find, I have searched for
Mail, Inbox.msf, Inbox.sbd, etc. No Mozilla inbox contains mail dated later than
6/20/03.  I have only the one Profile.

Summary:  Mozilla Mail window open, inbox is current.  Mozilla closed.  Mozilla
replaced.  New Mozilla launched.  Navigator window opens...WRONG !! Should be
Messenger/Mail window.  Close Navigator, open Mail window.  Latest mail in inbox
is 6/20/03.  No activity with any other app happened while doing this.

What happened?  How can this new Mozilla  possibly affect the Mozilla Mail file
in Drive B, Vol 1 ????

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Refuse to try to reproduce due to fear of additional losses.
2.
3.




I could understand if all mail was lost, but how is it possible that only mail
for  the last 2 months was lost?

How did my Appearance preference get changed/overridden, but NO OTHER
preferences were altered?

Ed,

You reported this bug over a year ago... where does this stand?

Did all your mail/data infact get lost?
Some kind of profile crouption?
Was the mail still inside your profile but mozilla just had problems finding it?

Most likely your data was safe but some other part of your profile was croupt...
are you still able to comment on this problem?

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
