10-15% of the time when pasting from 6.1Beta email to composer, it would freeze 6.1 totally. This would be copying/pasting by highlighting text, "Ctrl/C" and "Ctrl/V" (not the menu functions). When I would put my cursor on the right spot in Composer, and hit the shortcut, 6.1 would freeze. I could bring up another application - say calendar - over 6.1, but when I would shrink the other application, the 6.1 window(s) would be grey, and no buttons would work to exit or shrink. I would have to "Ctrl/Alt/Delete" out of 6.1.
additional comments from Jocelyn: It hangs until I "Ctrl/Alt/Delete". If I bring up another application - say Calendar, and then shrink it back down, the Composer window is gray - all content is unavailable - it's blank. All 6.1 windows (mail, browser) look like this.
Should we really be fielding Netscape 6.1 bugs in Bugzilla? Sujay, jocelynb: Does this happen in an up to the date mozilla build? If not, this bug is invalid.
need more info: what kind of email? Is it HTML email? Is the 10%-15% within the same session or different session? Pasting into what view? Normal, Show all tags, Source or Preview? If this was meant to be an internal netscape bug please file in netscape's internal bug system, the number of unconfirmed bugs in bugzilla is now overwhelming.
For the record this bug would also exist in mozilla since the keybinding, event, and editor paste code all exist in the mozilla tree. Joceylyn, please provide more info to help us reproduce this ... perhaps you can even provide us with the actual email that is causing the problem?
Jocelyn -- what are you pasting? where did the original note come from -- 6.x, 4.x, eudora? Were you pasting from the content area of the mail window? Did you select reply and copy from the reply window? Was it just text? Was it formatted text? was there an image, or table or lists in the selection? How large was the section you copied -- a couple of lines? A page? The document you are pasting into - was it a blank document? Was it an existing document that you were modifying? Were you pasting into a list? A paragraph? A table? Were you in Normal mode, ShowAllTags mode or HTML Source mode?
I had a side conversation with Jocelyn, I am unable to reproduce this particular issue, if she crashes again, I would ask that she forward the email to me, indicating the area of the note that crshed, and describing the document that she is pasting into, so we can try and replicate the issue.
