Using may 01 m16 commercial builds You cannot display messages in the 3-pane window message pane after you toggle View|Message once. The pane is still open visually, but no messages will load in the pane. You must toggle again to load message contents. This is a regression in View|Message being able to physically close the message pane. It is "virtually" closed. Steps: 1. Open mail 3-pane window, login to POP or IMAP account and select a message in the inbox. Message contents appear in the 3-pane window's message pane. 2. Toggle View|Message. Result: nothing happens, pane is still open. 3. Select a different message. No message pane activity. 4. Exit and relaunch, login and select a message. Result: only start page add content will display, no message contents will load in message pane. 5. Toggle View|Message. Result: Now message content loads in message pane.
To clarify: This problem is for the MENU item View|Message, which worked on Friday to hide/show message pane. I am not referring to snapping or dragging the splitter to hide the message pane (that hasn't worked right for some time).
Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar for beta2 fix.
