Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.2) Gecko/20060404 SeaMonkey/1.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.2) Gecko/20060404 SeaMonkey/1.0.1

Whenever I try to edit a long user dictionary file, a message appears that says that a script being run is taking too long, and gives me the option of cancelling or continuing with the script.  I have to press "Continue" several times for the script to finish running.  Probelem may have to do with the size of the file, but this problem did not happen with the Mozilla suite, and it happens with Seamonkey.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open spell checker
2. Press "Edit"
3. Wait a few seconds

Actual Results:  
Script error message opens.

Expected Results:  
User dictionary should open for editing.

Yes, that is right.  I had to wait a while, but in the end the list of terms to be edited appeared without showing the dialog.

Carlos, still a problem with SM 1.1.x or trunk (which has a new spell checker)
