The tree control which shows the mail folders seems to have a problem under the
modern theme.  The "arrow" which exapnds/collapses the tree disappears when a
folder is collapsed.

Double clicking which expands the item in other tree controls in the rest of
mozilla (e.g., prefs) opens the folder in a new window.

After a day or so, I realizes that the icon is just not displaying when
collapsed so if you are smart enough to click on exactly the right spot, you can
expand closed folders.  I would not under estimate the confusion this might
cause especially for "normal" users.  To all appearances you've lost the
contents of your mail folders.

I suspect that this may be attributable to the UI library, but when combined
with grapping the double click event in mail, it leads to a worse problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.CHoose modern theme
2. Restart
3. Collapse a folder

Actual Results:  
The "arrow" is gone

Expected Results:  
Display the arrow sideways

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
