User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3 (20031013) When I expand the News account, frequently my ISP's news server must be busy, and I get an error message pop-up: "too many connections from realm [my isp]". Thunderbird then hangs and starts using 100% of the CPU. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure a news account for an NNTP server that responds with "Too many connections..." error. 2. Try to expand that account in the left-hand window that lists accounts and folders. Actual Results: (1) A dialog box popped up that has the heading "Alert", an "!" icon, and the message "A News (NNTP) error occurred: too many connections from real xxxx (xx.xx.xx.xx)". (2) Thunderbird stops responding. (3) CPU usage is 100%, pulled by Thunderbird. Expected Results: Either (1) show the alert and allow you to clikc OK, then leave the News folder collapsed, OR; (2) with timeouts and retries, persevere. This seems to be what Outlook Express does, as I don't have this problem with Outlook Express, and my ISP's news server seems to only be in this state for brief periods as connections come and go.
I have also experienced this issue, more information and screen shots here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=32500 Error message: Error. Too many connections from realm myISP.com I get the same message in Outlook Express quite often but I just press ok and it stops for a while then tries again, this would be the expected behaviour.
