Split out of bug 1866660

When attempting to reply on a collapsed thread (e.g. hitting the Ctrl/Cmd+R shortcut), a new composer opens with a reply for every single message in the thread.

This issue is due to how we enable the reply command. In 102 and prior, we make a specific exception for collapsed threads here - see bug 500216. Since then, the 3-pane view has been reworked, with bug 1735119 re-adding commands such as reply to the new code, although the reply command then was limited to selections of 1 message. Then bug 1855065 re-introduced the ability to reply to several messages at once but didn't implement the special case for collapsed threads.

Therefore we need to reintroduce a check around here to prevent some actions to be run when the selection is a collapsed thread (while still allowing them when selecting several individual messages).
