for some reason when you close the mail window on linux, the window never goes away... it says "Clean up ..." on the console, which means the onunload handler is being fired... also, the window stops being painted, so it's as though mozilla doesn't think it's open even though it actually is.
nominate for dogfood, this is really hurting my development because I have to kill the process every time in order to quit & restart.
Actually, in this morning's release builds and previous, it crashes on exit everytime -- bug #39858.
Severity: normal → critical
interesting.. I've been just using the close box in my window manager, so I hadn't seen that crash.
Putting on [dogfood+] radar.
I can't reproduce this. Probably the steps given are missing something vital. Here's what I've tried (with a build current as of about 3:30PM today): launch -mail, close using window manager widget. launch (-browser), open mail, close using WM widget. launch (-browser), open mail, fetch new messages, close using WM widget. all of the above, except close using the File Menu item. The window closes as expected every time. Maybe I should mention that I use POP. I haven't tried IMAP; I'm getting a little bored trying to figure this one out. If IMAP is the important factor, I'd like to lobby that the mail/news guys take this bug over. Closing WFM and expecting to see more of this one.

thanks for looking at this. I started seeing this on windows too, but my build is a day or two old. I'll reopen if it's still happening.
verifying wfm (Alec -- I'm assuming this is no longer a problem for you, right?)
