After migrating from Outlook Express to Thunderbird 2, I am trying to re-enter all my message filter rules, which are all designed to move incoming mail to the correct folder.  When I get to the step to select the folder, I press the "down arrow" to bring up the list of folders, and try to select the folder.  But I CANNOT select the destination folder.  I try to click on it with the mouse and the arrow flashes but nothing is selected.  To clear the error, I click again on the "down arrow" which hides the folder list, then click AGAIN on the "down arrow" and this time I can select the destination folder normally.  This happens about 70% of the time I add a new rule.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.In Mail message, right click on the "From" address and add message filter.
2.Select "Move to" for action.
3.Click on down arrow to select destination folder.
4.Try to click on an existing folder, but folder won't highlight.
5.Click twice more on down arrow to fix problem.
6. (Problem doesn't happen every time - maybe 70% of the time)
Actual Results:  
Cannot select destination folder for message filter.

Expected Results:  
Should be able to point and click on destination folder.
Hi Peter,

can you look into the Tools->Error Console and tell us if there is anything there when you try to create filters ?
