User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1

There is no option available to show the total of unread messages, overall total of messages or the total size of messages in any mail folder.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Option can not be found.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
N/A

Expected Results:  
Having just "tried" migrating from Mozilla Mail, I would expect a similar function adjacent to the "Folders" title giving the choice of displaying one or more of the properties listing "Unread", "Total" and "Size", for each folder as is found in Mozilla Mail.

This is a brand new and fresh install of Thunderbird. I have tried removing, rebooting and re-installing Thunderbird with no change.

In declaring this Bug report as "Invalid" it would be helpful if Scott MacGregor could explain why.
I am, otherwise, left not knowing whether I have, after all, missed the method of display or why these options are unavailable.
I have tried but have failed to find any reference in the "Help" files, other Bug reports or Forums as to how to access this information, which is why I consider it to be a Bug or at least a desirable feature to add.

tools | options | advanced | show expanded columns in folder pane.

then, there's a little column picker to the right of the folder name column in the folder pane where you can add the total/unread/size columns to your folder pane.

No such column picker anywhere to be seen (I am familiar with the equivalent feature in Mozilla Mail).
I have checked in all three view options, none display such a picker. I presume it could look like the ones associated with "Get Mail" and "Print" buttons.

if you followed the instructions you should see column picker as shown in attached screen shot. NOTE: this is NOT a view - you get the picker using _tools_, _options_
