Using nov20 commercial trunk build After initiating a search, collapsing the folder or account hierarchy surrounding the searched folder will not clear the search text. Even after selecting another folder/group/account, the search text field will not be cleared. The thread pane will not necessarily be cleared, either, and in some cases it behaves oddly (varied behavior). 1. Open a folder or newsgroup in 3-pane mail window, search bar is shown. 2. Type some text in the search bar which will result in several search matches. 3. Collapse the account to which the searched folder/group belongs. Result: search text field is not cleared as it should be. Thread pane may or may not be cleared -- varied behavior seen. 4. Select another account's folder or group. Search still not cleared. 5. Clear the search text (you're in the different folder/group now) and type some new text to initiate a new search. Result: may or may not behave correctly to show correct results for the newly selected folder -- I've seen varied behavior. Note: This also happens if you're in one account and search a sublevel folder then collapse the parent folder structure. Note: Have seen a couple instances where the thread pane repaints with nothing but unread/green icon and mail message icon, no header content. If a line is clicked, the message pane will display content (of previous results?).
The weird blank but selectable thread pane display happens when collapsing a news account and not selecting any other folder/group/account.
Yeah, this is weird behavior. If acct is collapsed so that Nothing in Folder pane is selected, search field should clear.
This seems to have gone away.
