Edit | Find | Search messages 2. enter criteria that result in at least one matching message 3. right-click on any resulting message 4. nothing happens (but should allow right-click-type menu options corresponding to actions listed on buttons at bottom of screen) Actual Results: nothing Expected Results: should allow right-click-type menu options corresponding to actions listed on buttons at bottom of screen
Suite bug 66970. Not really part of 262012. That bug suggests the menu provide: Open Message, Move Message, Copy Message, Delete Message -and- Label Message The buttons on the bottom of the dialog provide Open, Move ("File"), Delete, as well as Open Folder and Save as Search Folder; maybe those first three buttons could be removed if this menu were provided. I would like to see Flag as part of the menu as well, which could be as useful as Label (more so if/when more Flag support is provided).

"recent" folders should also be on the context menu for move and copy. And thinking bigger ... Search messages is touted as the powerful cousin to quick search (and at times its availability is even offered as reason that quick search need not be improved in certain directions). So isn't it counterintuitive that the UI and message handling functionality of the (powerful) search results pane is so suboptimal/regressive?
Created attachment 430937 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix - wip Needs cleanup, but mostly working
I've been unbitrotting this patch these few days, it's quite rotted in some places. Should have a new patch soon.
Created attachment 531954 [details] [diff] [review] unbitrotted patch unbitrotted patch, most changes have mostly been ported except the ones in mailWindowOverlay and nsContextMenu, which have changed significantly and which I skipped, nothing done sans unbitrotting.
Comment on attachment 531954 [details] [diff] [review] unbitrotted patch ludo mentions that sr is for API changes only, so cancelling sr, but extra feedback would be nice. :)
Comment on attachment 531954 [details] [diff] [review] unbitrotted patch I don't think i'm a suitable reviewer as i wrote the original patch. I can't recall exactly what but there were still a bunch of things to sort out there. (And now if you didn't unbitrot all of the patch, it's not likely to work.)
