We don't have a component for local so picking the next closest thing...pop??? 

On a build pulled around 7:30pm tonight, I picked up a change that caused my
local folders to disappear. Instead of seeing the Local Folders account in the
folder pane, I get blank folder icon with no children. Many JS errors get
triggered if you try to select this blank account.

Here's the JS Console output when I click on the empty space:

I saw this problem on my machine after I pulled today's morning build. I
installed the build before I logged into my pop account I saw this dlg with an
The folder "null" could not be found, so filter(s) associated with this folder
will be disabled.  Verify that the folder exists and the filters point to a
valid destination.  OK

I clicked on the Ok button then I realised that my local folders were gone. In
the thread pane I saw only a folder without name, twisty nothing.  Then I
checked the filters. I saw that my bugzilla filter check box was unchecked and
this had moved down all the way in the list.  
I checked the checked box.  Restarted and the still was not able to recover my
local folder with the same profile

I closed and opened the application with a diffrent build and everything seems
fine. This is seen only from today's build.  

I am adding the keywords and nominating this bug since I see this problem on my
machine too.

When sending an email, I get an error dialog that says that the send was
successful, but there was a problem copying the file to the sent items folder.

I get this same error. This is making todays bits pretty hard to send email from
since I get prompted after every sending and none of my sent messages are
getting into my sent folder. 

I think this should have been a smoketest blocker today but the tree is already

This was caused by Darin's check in to nsURLSParser.cpp from yesterday. If I
back out his change we are back in business. Local folders are found again and
messages are properly placed in the sent folder.

Here's what you need to back out to get back in business again:

D:\mozilla\netwerk\base\src>cvs up -j 1.3 -j 1.2 nsURLParsers.cpp
RCS file: /cvsroot/mozilla/netwerk/base/src/nsURLParsers.cpp,v
retrieving revision 1.3
retrieving revision 1.2
Merging differences between 1.3 and 1.2 into nsURLParsers.cpp

Scott, backing out nsURLParsers.cpp does solve the problem.

since the tree is open, feel free to execute the backout. the smoketester must
not use local mail for the sent folder (neither do i, for that matter, which is
why we didn't notice :)
