This bug isn't fixed yet. Currently my thunderbird opens with an empty preview pane (completely white) and no message is selected. It would be nice to see it open the last selected message.
This bug isn't fixed yet, but didn't get much attention either. Currently Thunderbird doens't open any message on start, showing a white preview window. It would really be nice it would open the last selected message from the previous session. (like many other mailclients seem to do). Adding a _xref bug 268879_ to 276906.

I hoped this was fixed in 2.0b2, but it still isn't? Although I'm no programmer, I really hope this will be fixed soon. In the menu there's an option to 'remember the last selected message'. That does not work! So, please remove the option or fix it...
I agree with you Jeroen! The bug/enhacement isn't resolved yet (i got TB 220.127.116.11) ... Didn't receive any mail or info if the bug will be resolved at all :( Regards, Sero
This has been working for a while now, at least to some approximation. (Namely, the last selected message does not particularly work work for virtual folders, but that is not a session store limitation so much as a xfvf db view limitation or something like that.)
