Firstly, I’m thrilled about Mailspring as It’s the best, most intuitive and least fuss mail client I’ve come across in a while. I’m thankful to all those of you who keep the project running and I hope to make a small contribution myself buy reporting this bug.
When I click on ‘Compose new message’ a smaller window opens, much similar to any other mail client. All goes well if I don’t touch the menu atop the window (File, Edit, View etc.) but If I do, the menu extends/opens for a second or two and then the whole program freezes and promptly crashes. I can open, say, Help and see the version number for a moment without the whole application crashing, but everytime I open View, everything falls apart. This only applies to the Compose new message Window. Luckily there seem to be no lasting negative effects.
The version I’m currently running is 1.8.0-8983dca2, my OS is Fedora 33, kernel 5.10.13-200.fc33.x86_64 with GNOME 3.38.3 and Mutter. PC is a Lenovo ThinkPad with Intel i5 and 16GB DDR3.
I hope you can find a way to resolve this issue at some point in the future. Thank you very much!
