Non-intrusive notification of failed server connection
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050225 Firefox/0.8 StumbleUpon/1.994 Build Identifier: 20041206 When the connection to a server fails, the user ist notified through a message dialog. This is intrusive, since it has to be actively clicked away and flashes the main window's task bar entry while the application is in the background. This can become utterly annoying if one has a lot of configured accounts and the network goes down. There should be an option to notify the user using just an annotation to the account icon, similar to the "padlock" used to indicate a secure server connection. Alternatively the account name could be drawn in red. Reproducible: Always

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter. The latest beta releases can be obtained from: Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/ Thunderbird: http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/releases/1.5beta1.html Seamonkey: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/
Well, I think this bug is still relevant and not only pertains to Thunderbird, but also Firefox: if a site cannot be reached, a dialog box is shown which the user has to click away before proceeding. The IE behaviour of just showing an error page is much more convenient.
