From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001203 BuildID: 2000120308 After I added a new newsserver to my account settings, everything seemed to work fine. Some time later (maybe around the time when the next check interval arrived), mozilla started to increase its memory usage until the system ressources have been exhausted and crashed. Now the same thing happens every time I try to open the mail window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just open the mail window... Actual Results: mozilla displays the mail window and crashes then Expected Results: open the mail window
Further experimenting with the prefs, I found that the crash is not caused by adding the second newsserver (sorry for the wrong description...). Instead it seems to be caused by the check interval for new messages of 60 minutes. After setting this to 10 minutes the crash did not occur anymore. I hope this helps you in resolving this bug.
Reporter are you still seeing this in the latest nightlies?
I tried Build 2000121904 and the crash still occurs.
Marking NEW as per comments.
This happens in 2000122708 on Linux, as well. From the network activity on my hub when I start mailnews, I wonder if it's taking the number of minutes as a number of milliseconds?
cc'ing racham. This sounds like a dup of the bug Bhuvan recently fixed to use Int64's in the biff code.
Reassigning to myself.
Fix for this bug went in on March 6th, 2001 (So, please try the latest build out there..you should be fine). All the updates reporting the problem are prior to that date. Marking this as dup of 58721. Adding Sheela to the cc list. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 58721 ***
