Reading a message: start to create a filter for this message - doesn't seem to matter how. Get to the 'New Filter' and create one. FOR BEST RESULTS: do all the following using only the keyboard. OK-dismiss the New-Filter dialog: frequently audible alarm <ding> as though a bad keypress - maybe a hint to what's up. OK-dismiss the Filters-List dialog: again, frequently an audible alarm. You are now looking at the full-screen Message display. Key (e.g.) Alt-M (MessageMenu). SHOULD BE - Drop down the Message menu, OBSERVED <ding> alarm indicating an invalid keypress. Click the mouse on the full-screen Message. Try Alt-M again: success! Looks like Message screen didn't receive focus. Try same sort of thing from the three-pane Summary view; I used ViewSource to pick up the potential Filter value. Tools->MessageFilters->New . . . OK, OK. Note, the selected message is hilighted grey, suggesting again that focus is somewhere else. To confirm this, again try Alt-M. Sure enough: <ding>.
Reporter: can you confirm this still occurs with a new build? Try 1.0 final
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020905 Yes, exactly as described.
As reporter describes. Type in the information for a new filter, then hit ENTER to activate the OK and create the filter. You should be able to move around the Message Filters window now, but you can't. So far, I've only been able to mouse click on OK to get out of message filters. Suggest chaning summary to "Keyboard does not work in Message Filters window after a new message filter has been created"

Ever confirmed: true
Re: Comment #3, this is not quite the situation I was reporting. My problem is that *AFTER* dismissing the Filters dialog and returning to the Stand-Alone-Message display, the program is not in the correct state to respond to the keyboard. Therefore, I cannot, for example, delete the message using either [DEL] or Alt+E,D, nor file the message using Alt+M,M,... . To get the program into the right state requires to click the mouse on the message window. Focus should be back where it was when the Filters dialog was called up; it appears this is not the case.
