User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040208 Although this seems similar to Bug #206107, it does not appear to be related to IMAP. It can also occur when only the browser is open, although not as often or as soon, and seems to occur after some other apps are run that are resource hogs. It also seems to occur sooner and more often when run on a Win 98 host with 128MB of RAM than on a Win XP host with 512MB of RAM, and when the Inbox contains more message headers, suggesting it may be related to hitting some resource limit. It is suggested that Moz check for a connection and refresh if needed, and perhaps to provide the user with a manual refresh button, rather than having to close Moz and reopen. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Confirming. Have seen this many times on 1.6 and 1.7 pre-alpha on Windows 98 on a machine with 128MB RAM. Then you have to Ctrl-Alt-Del kill the Mozilla process and restart Mozilla. Then Mozilla seems out-of-whack anyway and you are better off rebooting the system. Not using Mozilla Mail/News on this machine, though I do use Thunderbird. Major severity as Mozilla can no longer download web pages, etc. Changing product/component. If it isn't right, say something or just change it back. I agree that Moz seems to hit some kind of resource limit.
