reopening to mark WFM as no specific patch attached to this bug report fixed this issue
Well it came back. Removing and reinstalling e-mail accounts allowed junk mail controls to work but after closing browser original problem returned.
This appears to be related to setting up a network under Windows XP. Everytime I try to set up a network either via cable or by wireless, the junk mail controls have the problem described, i.e, junk not moved to junk folder and seledtion of junk folder in junk mail controls will not stick. Also discovered that cookies not retained, e.g. have to relog onto my yahoo home page even though I have clicked the remember this info. on login page.
Andy Strojny, please look at bug 192119 and see if that specific symptom applies to your situation. If it does, please mark this bug as dupe of that one.
Did not depend on whitelist address book ala bug 192119. So NOT a dupe. It apparently had to do with a corrupt file when set up e-mail account. Deleting the account and reentering it appears to have solved the problem.
Note I also deleted and reinstalled Mozilla.
Reopening to fix resolution
Andy, please do not use Fixed unless you know of a specific patch that has been checked in to address the problem.
