User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0 Build Identifier: 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. version 18.104.22.168 (20061025)
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.
