[Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511] (release) (W98SE) Works fine: unread count not reseted to 0, and unread message "focused" in thread pane. [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8b) Gecko/20050217] (<-- 1.8b1 !) (W98SE) [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050714 SeaMonkey/1.0a] (nightly) (W98SE) and [Mozilla Thunderbird, version 1.0+ (20050319)] (nightly) (W98SE) Steps: (one way to always reproduce) 1. Have a .rc file containing a line like "netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey: 1-16749,16751" (== 1+ unread message "in-between") 2. Delete (all) .msf (and .dat) file 3. Start SM-MailNews/ThunderBird 4. Expand the related news server: the unread count shows 1 = fine. 5. Select the newsgroup; the headers are downloaded, then: R. The unread count is reset to 0, and the thread pane stays at its top; instead of "focusing" the unread message.
[Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8a1) Gecko/20040520] (release) (W98SE) Already has this regression.
[Netscape® Communicator 4.8 : en-20020722] (W98SE) Works fine. [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050720 SeaMonkey/1.0a] (nightly) (W98SE) (Bug still there)
I have that bug with Thindebird version 1.5 (20051201). Sometimes I see unread messages in a newsgroup, but can't read them. When I focus on that group, the unread counter is decreased (sometimes to 0, and sometimes to some positive value, and then I can read so many messages). When I press "Get new message", the unread counter is increased again (or after some time passes and Thunderbird checks for new messages in the group), but again I can't read messages. I have the same 'holes' in .rc file (for example, groupname: 1-25603,25604), and the number of messages in 'holes' is equal to the number of unread messages shown. I use to cure this by editing .rc file by hand filling the 'holes' (simply erasing all numbers inside leaving only 1-<final number>), but this is quite annoying and I am not sure I do not lose messages. I see this bug since I began using Mozilla and in Thinderbird too, when I switched to it.
Forgot to say, I see this in Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
