Now I must dig around in my folder tree manually to find the unread message. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create an account 2. create a folder "A" 3. create a folder "B" in folder "A" 4. put an unread message in folder "B" 5. collapse folder A, (ie, hide contents) 6. position on a message in an earlier folder, say, your INBOX. 7. "next unread message" Actual Results: Nothing at all. Expected Results: Mozilla should expand the collapsed folder, position on folder B, and display the unread message. Previous versions did not have this flaw.
Are you still seeing this behavior? If so, which window mode are you using? I.e., do you read you mail in the 3-pane window, or in a separate window?
I've just retested mozilla-1.8a5 on windows, linux, and macos. All three appear to be working correctly now.
No specific bug / patch identified as the fix. -> WORKSFORME.
