All text in the left pane (the "contents" pane with the accounts etc.) of the Account Manager is horizontally aligned identically. So, it looks like: > My Account Server Settings Copies and Folders Addressing Security Local folders Outgoing server (SMTP) Since neither Local folders not Outgoing Server has a twisty (arrow) (probably because neither have children), this looks as if they were on the same hierarchical level as Security, i.e. part of My Account, while they are not - they are hierarchically at the top level, that of accounts. This is confusing. Expected result: Make in some way the hierarchy visually obivous. Use twisties, idention, lines or whatever.
> Since neither Local folders not Outgoing Server has a twisty (arrow) (probably > because neither have children) No, this is irrelevant. Securtiy has no children either, is on a different level as Local Folders, yet has the same indention. Must be a bug in the tree drawing code.
Have seen this on w98 for a while now also.
I agree that it is confusing. The Account Setup spec has subitems indented more than what exists today: >My Account Server Settings Copies and Folders Addressing Security Local Folders Outgoing server (SMTP) Marking nsbeta1 so that it's clear the Local Folders and Outgoing SMTP Server panels are top level items, not subitems of an account.
This is a regression then. Acct levels used to have twisties.
They still have twisties. Items are misaligned as tree children need to be properly by default as opposed to doing the right thing when twisty is closed and opened.

Created attachment 65365 [details] snapshot of the problem If there are more number of accounts OR if you reduce the AccountManager window size and use the scrollbar to move up & down in the tree, you will see all redrawn items are properly indented. We need to fix the issue (could be a paint issue) with the initial launch.

this is a problem in trees in general, not just account manager

First, we kill all the trees...
Depends on: 110156
Keywords: nsbeta1+ → nsbeta1
What's the ETA on that? This instance is quote confusing...
The bug this depends upon (bug 110156) is scheduled in the next milestone, is nsbeta1+, and is not something that will not get done.

nsbeta1- per ADT triage team
Keywords: nsbeta1 → nsbeta1-
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0 → mozilla1.2
I think the Mailnews Accounts instance should be fixed for 1.0.
Severity: minor → normal
From what I've been told, 110156 (which got +'d) should fix the account manager bug. I hope it does at least.
fixed by 110156 tree conversion work
