Using the Go To Next Unread Message command in any method ignores local or POP
folders that have only one unread message.  You must select those folders
manually and issue Next Unread to see them.

This problem doesn't happen with IMAP folders

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Mark a message in a totally read local or POP folder as unread
2. Select another folder
3. Press 'n'

Actual Results:  
After reading all other unread messages, you never go to the marked unread message.

Expected Results:  
Shown you the marked unread message

Confirming for 1.3 Final, 1.4b
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030408

To fine tune the report:  Have two POP accounts, two user folders in Local
Folders, and at least one subscribed newsgroup.  Set up the 2nd POP account so
there is only one unread message in it; set up the user folders so that there
is only one unread message; set up the newsgroup so there are unread messages.

Go to the first POP account, enter the Inbox, select 'n': both the second Inbox
and the Local Folders will be skipped over, in favor of the newsgroup.

If each Local Folder has one unread message each, 'n' from the first Inbox will
skip the second Inbox, but stops at the unread message in the first Local
Folder.  Selecting 'n' again from here will skip the second Local Folder to
go to the newsgroup.
Ever confirmed: true

Same here for news. 
If the last folder is a news folder and there is only one unread message. 
N for next unread doesn't work.

i think this is a blocker for 1.4.
I my Dayly newsreading there is at last a news-group with only one mail in it.
N for next message is not working.

Anyone of the cc think thas this is a blocker?

I have the following:

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529

Definitely the same behavior here.  I agree this is a blocker, needs to be fixed.

An additional behavior I have noticed with this bug.  This only occurs with
messages that are moved into folders via message filters, so it will find a
single unread message in the Inbox. It will not find the unread message in
another folder if the Inbox is selected, but if I select the folder containing
the message, or a parent folder that contains a sub-folder that contains the
unread message, then it goes to that message properly.  Otherwise, if Inbox
selected, it attempts to go to  the next unread message in the next Account,
skipping the unread message in the current account that is in another folder.

Strictly speaking it's a dup, but who cares?
Depends on: 126626

Go to next unread message ignores folders with one unread message still exists.

I just installed thunderbird and i wonder this is working fine in
mail and news. Why not in mozilla mail and news? Has m scott a fix for this problem?

I think the priority on this very annoying bug should be increased.  If you use
filters to distribute messages to various folders, a no-find from next unread
requires that you manually scroll through the list of folders to see whether
there is one final unread message.  I subscribe to several busy list serves and
filter the messages from each list into a separate folder.  Messages dribble in
all day long so every few minutes I have to go hunting to see whether one last
unread message is hiding is some folder.  It is as nagging as water torture.

This bug prevents me from recommending any version of Mozilla higher than 1.3,
the last version in which next unread found all unread messages, to friends and
family.  Since 1.5RC1 was just released, I hope this bug can be fixed in 1.6.

Fix type of variable

Bah, I compared it to 0 without realizing that it erroneously was unsigned :-(
Of course the variable was declared correctly in GetTotalMessages...

the change is the right thing to do, but does it really fix the problem?

Asa: It seems that neil%parkwaycc.co.uk has landed this on 2003-09-19, see
nsMsgFolder.cpp rev 299.

So this is probably only left open for 1.4.2.

Thanks Robert. I didn't look close enough and was thrown off by the typo in the
checkin comment that referred to this bug as 210392 rather than 201392.
