Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.8 [en] (Windows NT 5.1; U)
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 (20040207)

Full row selection is always on in the mailbox. So you can't select mail
messages by "left-click-mouse + drag".

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Left-click-drag mouse in mail-messages window

Actual Results:  
When left-click-drag mouse in mail-messages window on a message it always
selects the message (full-row selection).
When left-click mouse in mail-messages window in a part of the window that does
not contain a message name you can't drag-select any of the mail messages.

Expected Results:  
1.Full row selection in the message window should be able to be turned OFF and ON.
2.Left-click-drag with the mouse should give the possibility to give an
selection square for messages.

I'm not sure what you want. Is it the same thing as bug 152861?
If yes, please mark this one as a duplicate.

It's not the same. Its in a different part of Thunderbird (mail-list/overview
and not the composer).
And does not concern replacing and searching but SELECTING messages from the
list with a mouse created box like the one that is possible in e.g. the windows
file explorer. Since full-row selection is the only selection option this is not
possible.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
