We have no intention of changing this.

I'm not sure we want to do this.
For sure, moving multiple folders at once will be annoying, but how often does a user need to organize multiple folders?
Messages are another thing, where multi selection actions are the norm, and we also offer a proper layout to handle multiselection.
For folders, if we allow selecting multiple folders we will need to create a new view to reflect that state in the message thread.
There are potentially a couple of "good" actions that might be triggered on multi folders, like opening then in separate tabs, or marking them as read all at once.
For now we're not planning to tackle this, but if we get many bug reports with valid workflows, we could consider it.
You missed the point - this functionality was already available and it was removed either by deliberate action or unintentional omission and that is why there is a problem.
In a business environment this functionality is important for work throughput.
Not fixing this means you are accepting it is ok to perform unnecessary mass scale repeat actions and that can create or trigger RSD and in my personal opion think Thunderbird should not be designed deliberately to aggravate or contribute to causing RSD.
Not everyone complains in Bugzilla when something does not work. Judging by comments in Support Forum many people do not even know Bugzilla exits. Many may believe supernova is an ongoing improving design because that is the kind of comments being made by the developers, so expect things to get fixed soon, so they are sitting it out or just reverting to 102* until supernova has fixed all of it's issues.
But an improved design should be at least as good as it's predecessor.
Therefore, the decision to not fix this is not really an acceptable cause of action and should be reconsidered.
Another report in Support Forum.
For example, I used to be able to select the "Inbox" and "Sent" folders at the same time, allowing me to perform various actions on them simultaneously. This functionality has been essential for my workflow, and its absence in the new version is causing significant inconvenience.
In previous versions of Thunderbird, I was able to select multiple folders from the left panel and perform actions on them, such as marking them as read/unread.
In Thunderbird Supernova 115.3.2, I am unable to select multiple folders from the left panel. Only one folder can be selected at a time, which makes it impossible to perform certain actions on multiple folders simultaneously.
This change in behavior is causing a significant disruption to my workflow, as I frequently need to work with multiple folders at once. I kindly request that this feature be reinstated.
