Mac (2000-07-05-11 M17) 1. Download the netscape6-mac.sea.bin file 2. Click on the Netscape icon to bring up browser 3. Select Task|Mail to open messenger or click on the Messenger icon Actual result: Most of the time no response. Unable to launch Messenger. Restart the machine and try many times. I was able to launch messenger a couple of times. But it is not consistent. Expected result: Should launch Messenger without having to keep trying. 4. Try to launch Messenger icon, Actual result: Browser was brought up with the software installation dialog. Still not able to launch messenger Expected result: Should launch Messenger. This occurs on Mac only. I search the bug database, do not see any bug filed for this problem.
I think this is related to or the same as bug 44342. I can confirm that I see this too on mac os9 builds starting 6/30 and still a problem today with 070510 mozilla bits.
Putting on [nsbeta2+][dogfood-] radar. Does not need a fix ASAP for daily work, but we should fix this for beta2.
reassign to scott. Scott - do you think it's the same cause as 44342?
I disagree with jpatel in that this does hinder daily work. Once you get into a state where messenger won't launch, the only way I'm able to get it to launch even via the messenger "command line" is by having to restart the machine; once you're in a problem state, subsequent launches by any means don't work. I think we need a fix ASAP to improve Mac mailnews testing productivity.
reassigning to ducarroz. But also marking as a dup. Alec was seeing a similar problem on Linux that sounds just like 44342. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 44342 ***
Mark it verified/dup.
Adding keyword to bugs which already show a nsbeta2 triage value in the status whiteboard so the queries don't get screwed up.
