From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 BuildID: 2002020406 With the newsgroup server selected, the File->Get next 500 news message option is available, but doesn't do anything. I figure that this shouldn't be displayed at this point.. It should only be displayed when an actual newsgroup is selected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mail & Newsgroups. 2. Click the newsgroup server at the top of left of the window 3. Click the File menu, you will then see the menu item displayed. Actual Results: The menu item "Get next 500 news messages" is displayed, but doesn't do anything. Expected Results: Maybe it shouldn't be displayed at this time?
you mean it should not be enabled? Again, a front end issue...

That's right. I don't think it should be displayed, because clicking it doesn't appear to do anything at all. Thx Rob
Rob, Gary; this seems to be a DUP of bug 113414. Please mark it if you agree, and I'll verify.
No, I don't think it is the same. What I'm saying is that when you click on the newsgroup server at the top of the list of newsgroups, then the menu item is still available. Is it supposed to be? When I clicked it, it didn't do anything. Thx Rob
Okay, server vs. newsgroup, my bad.
Summary: Get Next 500 news messages displayed always → Get Next 500 news messages shouldn't be displayed when server selected.
fwiw, 4.x disables get next 500 mesgs when server is selected.
Gary how do you mean 4.x ?
The old netscape communicator browser, currently at version 4.79.
Okay, I see. Then yes, it should not be dispayed as per Communicator - at least that's what I think.
Should be Seth's, but maybe Sean Su should help?
