Mozilla Mail is pretty often right about whether a mail is junk (spam) or not.
Most of the time you can see whether a mail is spam from its subject.

When I hit "N" or the "Next Message" button to go to the next unread message, I
want it to skip junk mails, if they would be visible at the same time as a
non-junk unread message. That way I can read the non-junk mails without any
further keypresses. I can eyeball the junk mails' Subjects and then give them
further attention, if needed. But in most cases (90%) I will only need to read
the non-junk mails.

This is just a UI optimisation. I don't know if this would be confusing, but I
thought I'd suggest it anyway.

Surely you could just use your Junk folder to hold mail you only want to read if
you need to give them further attention?

I would never look at that.
