It seems initially possible to select "view - sort by - thread" but the newsgroup will not display in a threaded manner. Clicking the various headers within the window sorts correctly, but clicking the thread/non-thread toggle has no effect (although the display does wobble a little.) Looking again at "view - sort by" shows thread selected but greyed out. Newsgroups exhibiting this problem also sometimes seem to forget that I've selected the option to only view un-read messages, so that every time I go to those newsgroups I see all messages. This is happening in 1.4 RC1 and also 1.4 beta on Windows AND Linux. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Tony Green: the View|Sort by|Thread item is greyed out if you are using a MailView (the dropdown list over the thread pane) or a QuickSearch -- for instance, if you have selected "Unread" there, you cannot view threaded. If that is your situation, then this is a duplicate of bug 135326.
Tony Green, I have determined that your bug is basically correct as far as describing new behavior. The part about being unable to select Sort by Thread after selecting View Messages Unread is what this bug is getting duped to; the part about "forgetting the unread" is, I think, bug 206131. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 209534 ***
