In 4.x, I use mail in 2-pane mode with only the folder and thread panes showing. I double-click on the message and have it appear in a new window. I can't stand the 3-pane way as it doesn't give me enough space or allow me to read multiple messages at once. It appears, though, that this is the only way you can use mail right now. - launch mozilla, open inbox window. - collapse the message pane by clicking on the slider - dbl-click a message in the thread pane expected results: - as in 4.x this should open up a new window with the message in it actual: - nothing happens. mail is useless like this. Any chance this can be fixed for beta?
For me, this is mail dogfood.
Putting on PDT- radar for beta1. Actually a feature bug (per phil) that is not scheduled for beta.
Mike, sorry we won't be able to get to this before b1. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 10875 ***
verified as duplicate
I don't think this is a dupe though... the bug we marked it dupe for was for standalone message window, which is slightly different
Talked to alecf. We now agree this is a dup. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 10875 ***
ok, verify once again.
If anyone cares, bug 6567 covers having multiple mail (3-pane) windows open; this bug probably should have been duped to that one instead of 10875.
No, I don't think that's right. Mike's asking for double-click in the thread pane to open a standalone message pane. That's 10875.
