Account Manager freezes when creating new account


(SeaMonkey :: MailNews: Account Configuration, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)

(Keywords: platform-parity)

More accurately, the Incoming Server dialog refuses to accept any input once you
change the Server Type: drop down menu from the default.

When I Ctrl-C'd out of a gdb session, I wind up with 5 threads running:

this is a modal-on-a-modal problem. reassign to danm, cc blizzard.

cls: in the mean time you can do File->New->Account

Keywords: beta2
QA Contact: lchiang → nbaca
Build 2000-03-27-08M14: Linux 6.0
Reproduced the problem.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new profile
2. Create the first account using IMAP. In the Account Wizard's Server dialog I 
was able to select IMAP for the Server Type and enter a Server Name.
3. Create a second IMAP account. On the Server dialog change the Server Type to 
IMAP and try to enter a Server Name.

Actual Results: Tried clicking into the Server Name field and the cursor never 
appears so it's impossible to enter a Server Name.

Expected Results: The cursor should appear in the Server Name text box. After 
typing, text should also appear.

Additional Information:
- NT4, build 2000-03-27-09M15: Ok, does not exhibit the problem.
- Mac 8.5.1, build 2000-27-09M14: Ok, does not exhibit the problem.
