Sort by thread: Unread column shows negative numbers I'm seeing this in News. I don't see this in Mail, but I haven't yet narrowed down to the pattern or why this is occurring. win32 2000-02-28-09-m15 commercial build 1) Select a newsgroup. I've tried .builds and .mail-news on news.mozilla.org 2) Sort by thread 3) Notice in the unread column in the thread pane, you will see negative numbers such as -4, -2, etc. I also see some positive numbers so I'm not sure why some threads show negative.
Ok, it appears that any thread where all the msgs are already read show a negative number indicating the number of messages in the thread. For example, if a thread has 4 messages and I've read all of them, then -4 shows in the unread column. If it matters, I regularly do a "Mark All Read" on these newsgroups.
actually, sometimes the count is off by 1. I haven't found out a pattern yet
Reassign to putterman
reassigning to bienvenu. This sounds like a bug we had a while ago. Of course, this could be the same bug and the .msf files were never deleted.
I have never deleted .msf files before. Let me go and add a new newsgroup (so no old .msf file hanging around) and see if this problem occurs.
seems like a dup to me - I can't recreate it. I'll go find the other bug.
maybe a dup of 25343
It may be a dupe. I have to monitor that new newsgroup I added for a day or so to see if negative numbers show up.
any progress on reproducing this?
I can't see this in the new newsgroup that I had added and marked things unread. Go ahead and close this one out. If I do get steps from scratch, I'll reopen.
works for me, probably a dup of an earlier bug

Linux (2000-04-26-08 M16) Win32 (2000-04-26-09 M16) Mac (2000-04-26-11 M16) mozilla (commercial build broken) I am going to verify this bug because Unread column does not show negative number any more. However, there is a different problem. Please see bug 37334.
