Pressing Get Msg corrects the number, but when I then read another message, the bogus count comes back. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a newsgroup that has unread messages. 2. Read some previously unread messages and/or mark threads as read or ignore. 3. Before marking everything as read, press Get Msg. 4. Read some more unread messages. Actual Results: 1. The unread message count might decrease. At first I thought this was it marking the new ignored messages as read, but now I know it isn't. 2. The displayed number of unread messages decreases by the number of messages that have been marked read, until it stops decreasing at zero. 3. The unread message count becomes correct. 4. The bogus number of unread messages comes back, out by the same number as it was before. Expected Results: Displayed the correct number of unread messages throughout the operation.
FYI : other counting bug in mozilla : bug 186650. Related?
Uh, probably not. But notice that those are far from all the counting bugs, if you look at the tracker bug 71728.
Just found bug 147710. But on mine, pressing Get Msg always updates the count to the correct figure, and otherwise the counting error seems unrelated to the number of ignored messages or threads.
It _is_ the same as bug 147110 (not 147710 you mentioned). Just tested on Moz 1.0.1: 0. I have a newsgroup with lots of ignored threads. 1. Mozilla refreshes the number of new posts when I open the newsgroup tree. The newsgroup shows 5. 2. I click on the NG, Mozilla downloads headers and shows 0 unread. But I can see 2 unread messages in the message pane. According to bug 147710, I should see -1 (5 total new minus 3 ignored, counted twice), but in case of negative number Mozilla stays at zero. 3. Press GetMsg - in the newsgroup tree 2 is displayed. 4. Click on another NG, click back - 2 disappears and newsgroup is 0 unread, still seeing the 2 msgs in msg pane. 5. Repeating steps 3. and 4. doesn't change anything, as long as there are no new posts. On Moz 1.3a release (which fixed bug 147110) I don't see these oddities.
Oops, typo. I meant bug 147110. But why minus _3_ ignored? You just told me you have lots of ignored threads. Expand the 'group tree, count 48. Open the 'group, count drops to 25 and then immediately up to 26. There are actually 48 - count out by 22 OK, so there seem to be about 22 ignored messages that came through since I checked yesterday. But if it were that then, surely, the result of step 4 wouldn't happen, since the 22-odd ignored messages are no longer 'just in' at this stage? Stewart.
>But why minus _3_ ignored? You just told me you have lots of ignored threads. Because only 3 messages of 5 landed in the ignored threads :) Could you check a recent build? You may have to mark the newsgroup read to set all the counts straight before testing again.
I think you're right, this is bug 147110. But no such problem happens on 1.3 beta. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 147110 ***
