I get a thread summary, but no indication of the current message.  (IE and
Netscape show an orange triangle next to the current message in the left pane)

This now works perfectly for me (complete with the orange 'current article' marker).

I haven't changed the build I'm running since I reported this (and in any case
this has never previously worked for me in any version of Mozilla).

I guess Google have fixed the problem, and this bug can be closed?
