Testing 64-bit SeaMonkey 2.49.5 rc build2 on Windows 10

So I only saw one advertisement for Chrome in the few web sites I 
tested. None that wouldn't let me use SeaMonkey including Google which I 
logged into, checked my mail and calendar.

Setting up email accounts is still as tedious as all heck, but I managed 
without any issues. Gmail and Google Calendar both work with OAuth2 
authentication.

I'm wasn't able to close the Mail and Newsgroup window with File > 
Close, but the it worked for the browser window. Will try again in a 
little bit.

Tried again and it worked but I had to file a bug report for newsgroup 
posts.

<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1572828>

and I had a crash.

New profile. Ran into old bug 521861
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=521861

server1.valid was set to false. Otherwise seems to work.

Need to check the crash next.

No problem with it on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS. I only created the newsgroup 
account.

I don't see any server1.valid in about:config.

I created another test profile.
Created only the news account, subscribed to m.test and all the messages 
now display properly.
Then I created my main email account. All is still good.

In about:config I see:

mail.server.server1.name;Local Folders
mail.server.server2.hostname;news.mozilla.org
mail.server.server3.hostname;mail.comcast.net

Exited and restarted and all looks good.

No this only pops up now and then. Cause unknown. Usually happens when you 
cancel the account wizard.
