Sometimes after i download the messages, the folder view pane on the left-hand side tells me there are unread messages in my inbox [like this: Inbox(1)], but when i click it, there are no new messages to be found in there. I have to right-click it and click "Mark Folder Read" to get rid of the warning, then read my mail some other way (webmail)... Happened twice in total, usually when there are many messages downloaded at once. e.g. out of 7 messages, 6 do show up, but 1 does not.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Can't reproduce, just fired it up and clicked 'get mail'... :(
Actual Results:  
getting the mail (no bug this time)

Expected Results:  
getting the mail

I'm using the official build. Extensions: Enigmail, MagicSLR, Display Mail User Agent Extension

Now i know exactly when that happens: I'm subscribed to Dilbert comic strips (comics@comicmembers.com). Those messages ceased to show up about 2 days ago. They get downloaded, but remain invisible. Any ideas?

You can try to delete the .msf file for the folder. For where, see <http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder>

If it doesn't help, try opening the folder it self in a text editor and see if the mail is there.
