Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20061011 Fedora/1.5.0.7-7.fc6 Firefox/1.5.0.7
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.7 (20061008)

When clicking on an rss entry to bring it up in the preview pane sometimes I end up double clicking causing a new window to open.  If I close this window before the spinner stops spinning on the new window it causes the whole thunderbird application to crash.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click open an RSS message into a new window
2. Close the new window before it finishes loading

Actual Results:  
Thunderbird crashes, closing all windows.

Expected Results:  
Only the new window with the rss article should close.

I am using the latest released version on Fedora Core 6.
thunderbird-1.5.0.7-4.fc6

Do you get the same problem with an official mozilla.org build? TB 2.0 or higher. If you do, provide the talkback id for the crash. <http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback>

I just tried an official build of Thunderbird version 2.0.0.0 (20070326) and this problem is not present in that version.
