User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160309193552

Steps to reproduce:

wait for spam to slip by Yahoo's spam filter, then try and mark it as spam


Actual results:

I click on the dot in the spam column, or right click and select mark -> as junk
The spam icon momentarily appears in the spam column, then immediately disappears.


Expected results:

The spam icon should appear and remain in the spam column.
I think this is related to imap since I don't have this problem with another e-mail account using a POP server.

I have found that the the Yahoo! junk flagging works on the $Junk $NotJunk IMAP flags. I am able to change the junk status report in Thunderbird by setting the flag $NotJunk directly using IMAP.
(a store # +flags $NotJunk)

Sorry should have clarified - that was for removing junk status, I assume to set it would be to set $Junk.

I have never had a problem removing the junk flag, only setting it. It will set, then immediately, with no action from me, unset.

It's something about yahoo causing it. When I click the junk icon on a message in my yahoo inbox, the message gets moved to "bulk mail" folder but the junk icon is gray in "bulk mail". I do see it in color for maybe 1/4 second after I click it before it moves. 
A couple other accounts I do the same and the junk icon remains colored after it is moved to "junk" folder.
I will need to look at what is happening in the imap log so I will leave my "needinfo" flag set.

I had another look - didn't find any related bug reports
