Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0
Build ID: 20170616104247

Steps to reproduce:

After an update (I don't remember exactly which one) an old folder ("Hírek és blogok" = "News and blogs") disappeared from the tree of folders and another but unnamed folder created (or shown) instead.
This folder was not used since years ago, I had no RSS subscriptions or such.


Actual results:

Now an unnamed folder is shown in the tree of folders, but outside of "Local folders" ("Helyi mappák"). It can be right clicked, but no actions will be applied to it (ie. delete or rename).

In Javascript consol the output is the followings after startup:

Could not read chrome manifest 'file:///usr/lib/thunderbird/chrome.manifest'.

[the last four errors are repeated if mouse hovers the folder icon]


For an unknown reason there is no "/Mail/Hírek és blogok" directory in my profile but there is "/Mail/Hírek és blogok-1" instead.
Manually renaming or totally deleting this directory from my profile does not solves the issue.

The other issue I have can be the aftermath of this: when I try to select/change storage folders (ie. in mail filters configuration) the drop-down list shows the "no folders available" message.


Expected results:

No unnamed folders to show and all existing folders with localized name should be displayed.
Also menu actions should be applied on them.
