User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040707 Firefoxy/0.9.0+ Build Identifier: This isn't major, but I'd like to see a global threading switch. When on, every folder and view except what is specifically marked not-threaded is threaded; when off, everything acts as it does now. (Possibly including search results, but that might be overreaching.) Anytime I copy my profile to another machine/install or restore a backed-up profile, all of the per-folder view options reset. Occasionally, but not really reproducably, folders seem to randomly lose their threadedness as well, which necessitates redoing everything. Alternately, at least take per-folder threaded/unthreaded (which should be a single checkmark option anyway since it's only a binary value) out of the bottom of the view->sort by submenu, and place it at the top of the threads subfolder, where it would be more logical. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Copy profile to new computer 2. Check threaded-ness of folders. Actual Results: Old folders are no longer threaded. Expected Results: All folders should be threaded. (That's how my setup is, anyway.)
This also happens with thunderbird-0.8.3 (Debian unstable). My thinking is that it may be reseting the focus whenver it receives a notify from the IMAP server that a new mail has arrived. I am not absolutely sure of this, because it often resets when there isn't a new mail visible - but that may just indicate that a new message has arrived into one of the OTHER subscribed folders, not the currently viewed one. Please, please fix this. I find it terribly disrupting to my workflow.
