Mozilla 1.8a sometimes will not open new mail.   Clicking on the mail item in
the top right window (Subject/Sender/Date etc) results in a blank screen in the
box below where the mail item should be displayed.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download new mail
2. Read some mail items, then go back to older mail.
3. Try to open another new mail item.

Actual Results:  
Blank "mail" screen in lower right hand box.

Expected Results:  
Displayed the mail item.

This is a new problem with Mozilla 1.8a on this machine.   All 1.7 versions
including RC3 are fine.

The 1.8a that I have is several weeks old, but as of last night there was no
newer version on the download site (that I could find, anyway).

It doesn't stop me - I normally use 1.7RC3 for reading mail and that's fine -
but it would be a major problem for folks using 1.8a as their only mailer.

  I have Mozilla suite 1.8a5 and the Yahoo mail page has been left only with the
buttons and links, the graphics are gone. Javascripts disabled: Can not compose,
send e-mail messages and can not attach files.I can open e-mail with this build;
had the same problem with build 1.7 but I reported that bug here in bugzilla and
was fixed however it has appeared on this build again.
