It is only possible to watch or ignore one thread at a time. If multiple threads
are selected, Ignore Thread and Watch Thread is disabled.
QA Contact: esther → laurel
background info: 4.x didn't allow multiple selection ignore or watch
Severity: normal → enhancement
Summary: Not possible to watch/ignore multiple threads → RFE: Not possible to watch/ignore multiple threads
Target Milestone: --- → Future
This would be a good enhancement, though - I read several newsgroups and
ultimately am interested in my own messages, it would be handy to tag all
messages from me in threads with unread and mark them "watched" so I can then go
through just the watched threads and then go back through the unwatched threads

Similarly with ignores, there are some people who post in threads that in this
particular circumstance (tech support newsgroups) I don't need to read their
responses because customer's been taken care of...
I entirely agree with the sensibility of automatically watching one's own
threads, and also with bug 73562.

My general process is to:
1. catch up on watched threads
2. pick some threads to read in Threads with Unread
3. ignore remaining threads with unread, so I don't get the same threads I
wasn't interested in next time

But see also the enhancement idea I've just submitted, bug 191283.

David, this scheme would be the easiest, if that's ok with you:
1. Toggle the state of the first thread in the selection
2. Carry over the state to any remaining threads in the selection
Also collapse any newly ignored thread.
yes, that's what 4.x did, iirc.

There were a couple of issues with the previous patch:
1. Watch/Ignoring multiple threads didn't always update the view
2. Ignoring multiple threads sometimes ignored the wrong threads

Fixed ignore issues

are you removing the behaviour of collapsing an ignored thread?

The old code only collapsed one thread. Well, it only worked on one thread ;-)

So I collapse every thread here. Sorry that the context wasn't enough to show
it properly.
