Go Next Unread thread and collapse read thread


(SeaMonkey :: MailNews: Message Display, enhancement)

Not set

(Reporter: phil, Unassigned)


(Blocks 1 open bug)


(Windows 2K, Mozilla 1.0 rc1, Gecko 20020417)
1. Open Messenger 
2. Select a newsgroup (one with some unread messages and threads)
3. Select View | messages | All
4. In the Thread pane, have the messages threaded (click on the thread icon)
5. Expand a thread and select an unread message 
6. Select Go | Next | Unread Thread (the keyboard shortcut is "t")

Actual result:
When the messages are displayed as threads, this choice will mark all the
messages in the curent thread as read, and will select the next unread message
in the following thread. 

Expected result:
An improvement would be to have the "all read thread" automatically collapsed
before the next unread message is selected. A possible implementation could be
to use "SHIFT + t" to do that.

see also bug 59263 and bug 66466 to be sure both are compatible (SHIFT + t would
collapse the thread/newsgroup or folder/account when they don't contain anymore
unread article, and move the selection on the next message or article unread in a 
thread/newsgroup or folder/account)
I think we have an old bug about this.

Perhaps, but I've checked before reporting... and couldn't find it ;-) 

What there is however, is a problem with the marking of read articles/messages.
Therefore this enh. ticket probably depends heavily on resolution of bug 108906
"Threads with only read messages still appear in "Threads with unread" mode".
and bug 64476
"threads with unread returns false positives"

For the shortcuts parts, see bug 109744 
"[RFE] option to collapse/expand subthreads"
And for the Bold/Underline text of an unread thread see bug 74357
"text styles for collapsed threads with unread children"

That's what I've found so far...
I too have found no dupes, thus conmfirming
