Reporter: Are you seeing this bug in 1.7b, 1.7a, or both? What happens if you do the following: -quit Mozilla -rename ~/.mailcap to mailcab.bck (mv ~/.mailcap mailcap.bck) -restart Mozilla Does Mozilla then still hang when handling xls files in messages?
The problem is not present in 1.7a. The 1.7b and build 2004032108 have this problem. Renaming the .mailcap file everything work fine with 1.7b and build 2004032108
same problem as in bug 237947 and bug 238081 then - resolving as dup In preferences->Helper Apps: Do you have xls files added there? Is the helper app set to ask before opening xls files? What app is it set to open with? (default application, app with absolute path, or app with relative path?) And is it the same as in mailcap? (grep excel mailcap.bck) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 237947 ***
