My primary e-mail account is to our local imap server. If I start the Mozilla mail client while the ssh tunnel is running Mozilla will hang. If I start the mail client (it complains about not being able to contact localhost as expected) and then start the tunnel things work fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I should add, this is only and issue with 1.5b, it worked fine in 1.4 and earlier.

Ever confirmed: true
Just a little bit of additional info, this still fails in 1.5RC1. Also, when I look at the logs on my imap server I see an SSL connection but no username. Here is my initial connection (when Mozilla hangs) -- the "end of file" is from my killing mozilla: Sep 18 09:51:34 morpheus imapd: imaps SSL service init from 127.0.0.1 Sep 18 09:53:00 morpheus imapd: Command stream end of file, while reading line user=??? host=localhost [127.0.0.1] And here is the connection after I kill my ssh tunnel, start the mail reader, and then start the tunnel: Sep 18 09:58:14 morpheus imapd: imaps SSL service init from 127.0.0.1 Sep 18 09:58:17 morpheus imapd: Authenticated user=drich host=localhost [127.0.0.1]
can we get a client-side imap protocol log? It might be empty, but maybe it will tell us something? Here's how to get a client-side log: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap
Created attachment 131690 [details] imap client log when mozilla hangs Here is the client-side log generated when the ssh tunnel is up and mozilla hangs on startup of the mail client.
Created attachment 131691 [details] Working client-side imap log Here is a client-side log from a working mozilla. This was created by killing my ssh tunnel, starting mozilla and the mail client, starting the ssh tunnel, and then checking a mailbox via. the tunnel. Connections to localhost are via. the tunnel, and connections to imap.pdi.com are my non-SSL primary mailboxes. Log has been edited to fit into attachment limitations
hmm, it looks like the connection gets established and torn down right away, without ever even getting a greeting from the server, as if the SSL handshake didn't work or something... Could you try a 1.6 build from yesterday or today just for fun? I doubt it will make any difference but I did change the imap protocol code to use blocking reads
any luck with a recent 1.6 build?
Sorry it's taken me so long, I got tied up with that work thing. :) I tried the latest snapshot this morning, it hangs in the same way as 1.5.
I'm having the same problem, though I don't connect through ssh, but directly using IMAP SSL. (Don't know if it helps or not, but...) renaming my .mozilla directory to .mozilla.bak and restarting mozilla made the hang go away.
See also bug 223356 - could they be related?
can you try another nightly build from today and see if it's fixed? I fixed a problem with getting the remembered password from the password manager that seemed to only affect multiple SSL accounts (I don't think it would cause a hang, but it's worth trying today's build)
I don't know if that fix was it, but something in the latest nightly fixed the problem! The bug is gone in the latest nightly.
thx, marking fixed
