User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

I regularly archive my 'Old Mail' into a separate folder by sorting the Inbox messages by date, group by sort, selecting the thread, and moving the messages to another folder.

When I try to move the messages, I notice that the Move/Copy/Label menu items on the Message menu are greyed out. I also notice that the Move To/Copy To/Label menu items on the right mouse button menu are *not* greyed out, so I use them instead.

Please consider not greying out the menu items on the Message menu.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.select Inbox with old messages,
2.sort them by date by clicking on the 'Date' column header,
3.group them by hitting the 'g' key,
4.select the 'Old Mail' thread by 'Edit/Select/Thread' ('crtl-shift-a' conflicts with Trillian),
5.bring up the 'Message' menu
6.right click on the message list page

Actual Results:  
In step 5, the 'Move', 'Copy', and 'Label' menu items are greyed out.
In step 6, the 'Move to', 'Copy to', and 'Label' menu items are not greyed out.


Expected Results:  
In step 5, the 'Move', 'Copy', and 'Label' menu items should not be greyed out.

Quick workaround: Ctrl-click on the group header to remove it from the selection, then the Message menu works OK.

xref bug 306460, bug 314607, bug 338625 -- those group headers are simply not well-behaved.

In 2b1, the behavior is basically the same except Label is now Tag -- and it's enabled at the top-level but the submenu is not fully populated.

confirm your workaround, though I just used the mouse menu :)

Is this collection of issues seen in version 3?
