First, thanks again for all the comments on previous entries
. I filed a bunch of bugs this morning and updated those entries to list the bugs. The bugs typically contain more informative less ranty comments, as this blog is a space to reflect my frustration and bugzilla is not. The "Close Window" bug in particular is much more clear than the post.
(Yay for copy/pasting hyperlinks working so great in Firefox and Blogger.) (The bugs contributed 2.5% towards me getting to the next bugzilla level!)
Before going on, I like to mention that unlike some comments suggest, the Evo hackers are
very active and willing to fix bugs. I say so from experience on the few Evo bugs I've been CC'ed on. It's just that there's not many of them...
Rant of today comes from the last of bugs listed above:
With certain HTML mail, but not only spam, Evo stops updating the mail view and keeps viewing the same message no matter where you move away...
I have two options at that point: 1) double-click on each message to read them in a separate window, 2) restart Evo. The tip from yesterday
comes handy at this time.
I also see a milder version of the problem when on certain other HTML mail, it takes a few seconds before Evo updates to show any other message. I call it the "pray period
" as I'm typically praying that it gives up after a few secs and I don't have to restart the thing.
