Thus, instead of selecting all of the messages from the chosen filter, all messages are now chosen. In the past (at least as late as moz-2004-05-14 build), the filter selection was left unchanged after ctrl-A was pressed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.From Mail window, select a filter for the "View" field. 2.Press ctrl-A to select all of the messages displayed for that filter. 3. Actual Results: The messages which are filtered appear, but when ctrl-A is pressed, the "View" field changes from the chosen filter to the "All" view, and all messages are selected, not those which were selected by the chosen filter. Expected Results: Changing the "View" to a filter shows the filtered messages. However, pressing ctrl-A should not change the filter setting, and should simply select all of the currently filtered messages.
I have also the same problem, Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a4) Gecko/20040927. Previous bahvior was match better.
I am seeing this in Thunderbird 1.5b1 on OS X.
Note that Edit->Select->All does the right thing (i.e. only selects all messages in the current view), but this menu item also claims Ctrl+A as its short-cut. I first hit this when moving all the messages my SPAM view. At least I didn't just delete all the messages I'd just selected (i.e. my entire inbox), but it was close call!
