Thanks to the Devs for the great work with SeaMonkey over the years!

Build 2.48 is actually the first version with which I'm having real problems running on two Macs (Mac Pro 5.1 and MBP 13" Retina 2105) with Mac OS X 10.11.6. A few day ago I installed this release over version 2.46 but had to uninstall it again due to non-functioning mail.

Bug symptom: opening the Mail window, then clicking on a message in the Inbox crashes SeaMonkey consistently. The mail files are OK and deleting all msf files did not help.

Log message:

Any clues to the cause?

I read all these related threads but unfortunately could not find anything relating to my "click mail message & crash" bug.

Having exactly the same issue as ppweb, MacBook Pro running 10.12.6. This is a late 2016 MBP, 500GB SSD, 16 GB RAM, dual graphics. I can load messages from the server, but as soon as I click on a message, I get the spinning beach ball and then SeaMonkey crashes. Had to reinstall 2.46 to get mail working again.

The crashes will be fixed in the next version.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1389181

If you want a private test build to check if this is the case let me know.

Great to hear, thanks! The 2.48 release is unfortunately not usable for me. I had SeaMonkey 2.48 send a few crash reports before uninstalling it.

Did you try it? If yes, is it ok?

I think we both are missing the download link to the private build.

I did sent it to him via pm. This is a private test build and I don't want these to float around. Hope that 2.49.1 building can start soon. We still discussed some config problems but they were not source code related.

If you want the link please send me a pm.

I skipped 2.48 as I am a heavy Mail user on OS X, but updated to 2.49.1 today and see no issue.

Thanks!
