Moving more than 1 Sub
Dirs into another Dir only move 1 of marked Sub Dirs . And all moves fail after that .
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140716183446 Steps to reproduce: Thunderbird v31.0 german (testet in lokal/installed AND portable Version from "PortableApps"): I mark more than one emty SubDirs (vor example "a", "b" & "c") in my MainDir "X" and will move they into a new MainDir "Y" via Drap&Drop. But only the first Subdir "a" will moved. After this I can not move other SubDirs, wether between this two MainDirs (x & y), nor between other MainDirs Actual results: Only one SubDir ("a") will be moved into MainDir "Y". The other SubDirs ("b" & "c") stay in MainDir "X". I can mark other SubDirs in this or other MainDir, but Drag&Drop will never work, until I restart Thunderbird v31 (lokal AND Portable). After restart, I can mark a single SubDir and can move it via Drag&Drop in each MainDir, whatever I will. But if I mark MORE than one SubDir to move them into another MainDir, the same error/mistake will happen. Expected results: I had expected, that all marked SubDirs from MainDir "X" will be moved via Drag&Drop into new MainDir "Y", but it doesn't work.
Does this also happen with Thunderbird in fafe mode? And, can you skip back to version 24  to tell us whether the problem goes away there, and then we know for certain if it is a regression?  http://download.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/24.6.0/win32/de/
Whiteboard: [dupeme?] → [dupeme?][regression:TB??]
p.s. please also describe which folders are imap, pop and/or local.
> Bug summary : Moving more than 1 SubDirs into another Dir only move 1 of marked SubDirs. This is known issue(mismatch between UI and Backend) and is current Design/Implementation(can be called "current restriction") - "Move folder by Drag&Drop" supports single folder only since initial of NetScape/Mozilla Mail&News/Thunderbird. - After it, "multiple folder selection" is supported at folder pane. However, "Move folder by Drag&Drop" still supports single folder only(currently selected folder only). - FolderTreeView supports multiple row selection(at Folder Pane, multiple folders can be selected). Both "currently selected folder" and "all selected folders" can be obtained via FolderTreeView call. - "DragStart event handler of Folder Pane" passes only one folder(type=text/x-moz-folder) via event.dataTransfer object. - "DragOver event handler of Folder Pane" assumes "single folder selection"(currently selected folder . - And, "drop event handler of Folder Pane" and "Folder copy/move code" supports single folder only. Solution : (a) Until "Move directory by Drag&Drop" will support "multiple folder copy/move", "dragover event handler of FolderTreeView" shows icon for "move/copy folder is not acceptable" if multiple folders are selected at folder pane (b) If needed, support "multiple folder selection" in both "drag/drop event handler of Folder Pane" and "Folder copy/move code". IIRC, (a) is already requested in a bug or some bugs.
