Using mar12 commercial trunk When switching the filter ui action dropdown to Priority there is no default selection and the dropdown appears blank. Available choices are shown and selectable when pulling the list down and Normal is checked as default, but was not initially shown in the dropdown when switching action to priority. Regression... seems to have broken last week, mar6 trunk selects Highest as default and is shown in dropdown as default selection on switching to action Change Priority. Note: Normal is checked as the default where previously we had Highest as the default. I didn't see this specified in filters spec, so which is our lasting decision? 1. From mail window, Edit|Message Filters|New. 2. Switch action dropdown from MoveToFolder to Change Priority. Note the value dropdown shows a blank selection. Pull down the list and choices are shown and selectable, Normal checked as the default.

Created attachment 99177 [details] [diff] [review] fix to make the default something else (like highest, normal seems like a weird default) all we need to do is change const nsMsgPriorityValue Default = 4; in MailNewsTypes2.idl

jglick, I think high or highest priority makes sense as a default. why make the default normal, when most mail has normal priority? (unless the common case is to create a filter to *normalize* priority, since it's set by sender, and not user)
fixed. if you want to change from normal to something else, let me know.

Using sep16 commercial trunk, we have a default selection, but the default is "highest" on win98 and for linux and mac it's "normal". Inconsistent -- what was the final decision?
"highest" for all platforms.
bug 174437 has been logged to change the default selection, making all platforms consistent at Highest. Marking this one verified as indeed the default isn't blank anymore, ok using oct14 commercial trunk.
