Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070206 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.12 (20080213)

I'd like there to be an option for specifying a number of 'context lines' to be viewable in the header pane above/below the cursor as you scroll up/down. In other words, disallow the cursor from being more than (# of context lines) from the bottom, and instead scroll the headers up/down to the cursor, so that there is always viewable context.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Enhancement, no reproducibility.

Can you perhaps give a screenshot of the "header pane" you are talking about, and how it should be different, along with more information.

Start point

This is the start point for the behavior I am trying to describe.

From here, we press the down key. I'd like Thunderbird by going to the state depicted in "Proposed Behavior" instead of "Current Behavior".

Proposed Behavior

As you can see here, we have one line of context below the cursor in the header pane.

Current Behavior

This is what will happen in the current version of Thunderbird. We have no context below the cursor, ie. we cannot see any headers below the one currently selected in the header pane.

Added screenshots, please let me know if what I am trying to describe is still not clear. Thanks.
