when all accouns are set to global inbox, filters on all accounts are the same
and updated with the details from the account which filters have been edited last


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I've set all my mail account to deliver to "Global Inbox" (3 accounts)
2.All filters were deleted as warned by the dialog box.
3.After Mozilla's restart, there is no way "To create filter from message" as it
only works on the original inboxes.
4.a)I've manually created filter for the first account "when Subject contains
'dbworld' Move to particular folter" and pressed apply.Filter doesn't work on
the inbox (I assume it gives option of the original account that is invisible
now and so the dialog box of which folder of the account to apply is unnecessary
and confusing).
  b)I manually apply filters to the global inbox using "Run filters on folder".
Filters work.
  c)After the restart the filter was duplicated to another account. I changed
the same filter on one of the accounts. After restart the filter is the same
again on both accounts with the details from the account I was editing last.
  d)when I restart mozilla with newly added filters on both accounts, the
account that was edited last is updated and its newer filters copied to the
another account.


Actual Results:  
c)After the restart the filter was duplicated to another account. I changed the
same filter on one of the accounts. After restart the filter is the same again
on both accounts with the details from the account I was editing last.
  d)when I restart mozilla with newly added filters on both accounts, the
account that was edited last is updated and its newer filters copied to the
another account.



Expected Results:  
in case of all accounts set to global inbox, there should be 
a) either one set of filters applied to all incoming mail with filter option
"from  particular account"
b) or the filters from different accounts should not mix
