This happens often when I don't intend it to, as when opening a newsgroup and then mousing over to another part of the window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click a newsgroup name in the left-hand pane of the mail/news window. 2.While waiting for it to respond by highlighting the newsgroup, move the mouse over to a local folder name. Actual Results: Copied the whole newsgroup, with all the messages in it, to the local folder that the mouse happened to be over when it finally opened the newsgroup. Expected Results: Realised that I had released the mouse button before moving the mouse, and not tried to copy the newsgroup anywhere. This is a case in which other, more serious problems related to the copying of newsgroups are likely to occur. If the inadvertently copied newsgroup has many messages on it, it will tie up the thread that copies messages for a while, such that it has trouble in saving messages I work on even to Drafts or Sent Items. What's more, Mozilla tends to crash ("The application Mozilla has unexpectedly quit" error) while I am trying to clear up the mess that the copying action has created.
