i have to open email window, then open browser and do online business, and then return to email window to see how many of the emails have migrated in that time.  it is not junk mail that is causing the problem.  it may be emails with .jpg attachments.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: email window 
2.wait to see how many emails i have waiting
3.go away for awhile while they migrate
4.return to email window
Actual Results:  
i went days without any email this week because i didn't realize how long it took.  the problem occurred with previous mozilla version due to a very large email, but only once.  this time the problem is not a very large email, nor is it spam.

if i wait long enough, the mail migrates.

Expected Results:  
previous performance:  when migrating "message 1 of x" message quickly appears and message changes to "message 2 of x" quickly, with the rapid appearance of message 2.

this is very frustrating, and i hope you can fix it, but it's not killing me now that i've learned how to get around it.
Migrating from moz suite? As a workaround you can just copy paste over the mail folders to the new location... (See

Reporter, could you list which versions you're migrating from and to, and roughly how long it takes per message?
