Description

13 years ago
1.1a1 has hung a few times.  (I selected Trunk as the closest cousin.)  It's
completely unresponsive for over 20 minutes.  Cursor spins over menubar.  If I
force-quit, the crash reporter doesn't come up.

I got my build from
ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/1.1a1/mac/en-US/ and the
checksum was correct.

FYI:

I mentioned this in passing in the Bug 206408 here:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=206408#c95 

Sorry, not much detail to report, other than 1.0.2 continues to work quite
reliably.  I want the fix to the above bug, which seems to be in 1.1a1.

I could swear there was a way to enable error logging with a preferences setting
(i.e. an edit to prefs.js or user.js).  Isn't there? Or is
http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap really what
I need to do?

yes, you want the protocol logging described by the document you linked to.
Though if Thunderbird itself is hung, it's not likely it's imap that's hung,
since IMAP runs on its own thread. So when it's hung, you can't open new
windows, etc?

I'd been trying to get debugging working.  My result: the only unixish method
worked for me on OSX 10.4.

Dragging a text file with 
ARGS:-mail
ENV:NSPR_LOG_MODULES=IMAP:5
ENV:NSPR_LOG_FILE=/tmp/ThunderbirdDebugMode

in it onto my Tbird folder didn't enable logging, or result in a new file inside
the .app's MacOS folder.

This suggests the following edits:

Can someone confirm/deny that this edit is appropriate/the extant instructions
work on OS X?

I should have a log from my next crash within a few days. :) :(

does this still happen with TB 1.5.0.4?
If so, please supply protocol log

Lack of information since last comment, WFM on Mac IMAP as well, 1.5.0.x is no longer supported.

-> WFM.
