User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.6 (20070728)

Further improvements to the mail alert pop-up.  This comes from discussion with Scott MacGreggor who made the current mail alert impovements.

The mail alert can already stay on screen as long as you want by setting the fade time in the config editor under alerts (though it could also be put in a more obvious place).  This is very useful if you like your alert to stay on-screen until you've read the email.

The following enhancements would be a good addition to this functionality:

* alert should automatically disappear once you click the last message listed inside it.

* clicking on a message alert should not only open the thunderbird message window at that message, but should open the message itself.

* the alert window should update when a new message comes in, even if it hasn't faded out yet.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on mail alert pop-up
2. Set about:config alert fade time to a big number so it doesn't disappear
3. Receive some new mail

Related to bug 315776 and/or bug 282619?

Making it open the message when clicked would actually make it easier to close the message alert.

Hi Thomas. Assuming this is not intended to be a meta bug for ALL mail notification alert bugs .... can you clarify precisely what this bug is about so the bug summary can be changed to something more specific than "Mail alert enhancement"?   

Thanks

Yes, I think I meant to make this a meta bug.
