All the subfolders of the INBOX remember their expanded/collapsed state between running/quitting of Mozilla. But expandable folders inside the expanded folder of the INBOX are not remembered. They collapse upon re-running Mozilla. (they are shown visible before the password is entered, then collapse). eg: INBOX - Drafts - Sent v Software - mozilla v bugzilla <-- These types of folders are the problem - bugs - webtools Message count information is lost as well (new/total counts) until clicking on the folder. And the sort view is lost in those folders (thread view, etc). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open mail 2. Expand a subfolder 3. Expand a subfolder in the folder from step 2 4. Open folder in subfolder from step 3 5. Set view by threads 6. Note message counts in folder from step 4 7. Quit Mozilla completely 8. Run Mozilla and enter Mail 9. Enter password 10. Expansion of folder from step 3 is now collapsed, so expand it 11. After expanding, no message counts are displayed -- enter same folder from step 4 12. Note that the thread view is not remembered Actual Results: (actual results are listed in steps to produce) Expected Results: Expect Mail to remember the state of the expanded/collapsed folders in the folder pane, and remember the message counts and view settings for all folders.Expect Mail to remember the state of the expanded/collapsed folders in the folder pane, and remember the message counts and view settings for all folders.
Perhaps a clue: From this example: INBOX - Drafts - Sent v Software - mozilla v bugzilla - bugs - webtools > sourceforge v operating-systems - linux - amigaos After closing with the view like above, rerunning Mozilla and going to Mail shows this: INBOX - Drafts - Sent v Software - mozilla > bugzilla > sourceforge > operating-systems If I collapse and re-expand the Software folder, it results in correctly displaying the collapsed/expanded folders inside the Software folder: INBOX - Drafts - Sent v Software - mozilla v bugzilla - bugs - webtools > sourceforge v operating-systems - linux - amigaos The message counts are still not there though, and the view state is still not remembered.
I remember David fixed the first instance of this a while back...Seems like there's something lingering, not sure.
This appears to be working correctly in Build 2003092704 (just downloaded today).
I have the similar problem with Tbird 0.6 but there doesn't appear to be any memory (opening and closing folders doesn't seem to change the result). So annoying. This an other bugs make me want to drop Mozilla/Tbird...
did you try tbird .7? This works fine for me with a .7 build.
Yes, I'm using 0.7.2, Win98SE. Thread view is sometimes not remembered. Expansion/collapse is never remembered. Message unread counts are not correct. It appears this occurs when Windoze crashes and Tbird doesn't close normally. Compacting used to help but not it doesn't seem to force the current state of the mailbox.
My PC crashed and I had to restore my mail folders. After this and the latest version of T-bird, I no longer have the problem. -Noel
Tested again in Thunderbird, version 220.127.116.11 (20080421) I tested the expansion and sorting - both were remembered properly after closing Thunderbird and reopened.
