Flashes Sidebar: Notification: folder icon should not show green arrow if no new
messages

Setup:  I'm using Win32 build 1999072708, IMAP

1)  Start Messenger
2)  Select the Inbox
3)  Get new messages
4)  In the Sidebar, Flashes panel, I see my server listed: vadar.  In the
description, it reads "0 new messages"  Notice that the folder icon next to the
server name shows a green arrow to indicate new mail.

Expected results:  If there are 0 new messages (which is true because I don't
have any new mail), then the folder icon next to the server name should not show
a green arrow.

Have not tried Linux or Mac yet.

David, maybe I should be doing some checking, but I wonder if you aren't setting
the biff state correctly when there's no new messages.

I should mention that this is an imap account.  I don't think this is happening
for POP.

I'll check - I didn't port the backend biff stuff, but I'll poke around and
connect the loose ends.
I only set the biff state to new mail when there are new headers to download
(see 10594) but when should I be clearing the biff state? Not whenever I do
biff. I'm never clearing it, but I thought we were going to do that when the
user clicks get new mail or loads a folder, or reads a message.

reassigning to me.  Right now I'm not clearing on download.  I'm depending on it
being cleared the next time a biff goes off.  But you're right, if I did it when
messages are downloaded, this wouldn't be an issue for you.

I think this needs to be fixed by PR1, so I added a note to the Status
Whiteboard

this won't happen in M11.

Since we won't have alerts, this bug may be invalid now.
Target Milestone: M12 → M14
not gonna happen in M12.  Marking M14.
