Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Collapse message pane 2. Close Mozilla 3. Restart Mozilla And/Or 1. Collapse message pane 2. Click on a main branch in the account/folder list pane 3. Click on the Inbox (or other folder) in the account/folder list pane Actual Results: Message pane is expanded, but the splitter bar will be in the wrong state. The program thinks the pane is collapsed, but it is not. The expand/collapse button will have to be clicked twice to collapse the pane again (once to "expand" the already expanded pane, and once to collapse it). Expected Results: When the message pain is collapsed, it should remain collapsed, even after restarting the program or selecting accounts/folders. I'd consider the severity as "minor", but too many unread messages have been marked as read accidentially, so I'm going with a "normal" severity (ooooh, your in trouble now ;-) ).
If you are using the "alt" 3-pane layout (message pane extends across the entire bottom of the window, below the folder pane and thread pane) then this is the problem described in bug 77447; please mark this bug a dupe if it is, or supply more information if not. I guess it's unlikely to be fixed, but Thunderbird does not exhibit the problem.
I think you are correct. The problem does seem similar enough to 77447 to be considered a duplicate. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 77447 ***
