User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: mozilla-1.7.13-

RHEL 3 U7 Kernel 2.4.21-40.ELsmp using KDE desktop.

User states:

The attach button on the e-mail system with the new mozilla you installed also does not work. To be more specific, the main problem now seems to be with opening a new mozilla browser window, or changing the contents of an old window. When I try search in the Edit menu in mozilla, there must be a new window opened, in order to enter the word to be searched for, and that does not work now. Similarly, the attach button on a e-mail requires opening a browser window for specifying the file to be attached. It seems that the new mozilla cannot open these extra windows.

Also states:

Mozilla does not allow me to delete a partially composed e-mail without saving it to a draft, and web links from inside e-mails no longer work automatically when clicked, but need to be copied and pasted into the browser.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla-Mail
2. Try to attach a file
3. A window does not come up for attachments.

Actual Results:  
A window does not come up for attachments.

Expected Results:  
A window should pop pu so that user can attach a document.

This is a new problem with the latest update from RedHat. There is more than one user who has the same issues. I believe this to be a Mozilla issue, but it may be a RedHat problem. I am also letting RedHat know about the issue. 

User is using a Dell P670. Everything worked before moving to the latest version of Mozilla.

Forgive me if this is not complete enough, I have not filed a bug with Mozilla before.

Mozilla 1.7.13 is the last of the 1.7.x series, so bugs you might see in it won't be fixed in a future release.  But it looks like your build came from Red Hat, who might be more interested in fixing regressions.  You can report bugs to them via their bugzilla:


Mail products that are still under active development (for which we still want bug reports) are Thunderbird (1.5 and higher) and SeaMonkey.
