Description

18 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7C-CCK-MCD {C-UDP; EBM-APPLE} (Macintosh; I; PPC)
BuildID:    m17

Everything seemed fine in m17 until I clicked the Mail quicklaunch button at the 
bottom of the browser window. When that happened, the Mail window popped up as if 
loading and then crashed m17 as well as the OS. I restarted and found that it 
would get to the smiling Mac face and stop with no further hard disk activity. 
Booting from a CD was fine and all files were accounted for, though everything 
now had a date between May 9, 1959 and Jan 31, 1961. All three partitions were 
affected so. In order to boot again, I had to back up all my data, reformat & 
repartition my hard disk, reinstall the OS (I couldn't use the damaged system 
folder.. I tried.. it did the same thing listed above) and restore my files. 
Everything works fine now save for the fact that everything on this system was 
created well before I was born!

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open up Mail window from quicklaunch toolbar. Forgive me if I'm not eager to 
reproduce the error. I was running the latest in shipping Mac OS technology 
(9.0.4) at the time.

Adding crash keyword.

rivalbo@home.com - sorry about what happened to you, but this seems like too 
serious a problem for Mozilla to cause all on its own. It could be your computer 
just happened to break down while you were running Mozilla... As no-one else has 
seen this, and as you (perhaps understandably) don't want to try reproducing it, 
what do you suggest we do next?

I'm not sure what to do with this bug report.  We've had no other reports of 
this.

I am not seeing this problem either. Maybe we should mark worksforme, 
as I don't think mozilla could kill so much.

resolving worksforme with 082409 mozilla build on MacOS9.  reporter, if you see
this again please reopen.  Thanks for your help in testing mozilla and reporting
bugs.
