can reproduce that pretty consistent. with click on group head or *

If grouping by sort and account, msg from imap show confused and appear without an account in column and some under another acc, not grouped actually, not collapsing, some under an acc group head with only (32) and no  name corresponding to sent in gmail imap structure. 

that one is the crasher .. when +/-
The problem is that account column is empty anyway for that gmail imap, regardless of groups or such.

I managed to also collapse expand that 32 one without crash but it disappeared along with the above account, only one account left out of 3

I suspect it takes some switchin sorters first, and than expand collapse group crashes immediately. It may be keen to location or account sorters, as I think I was there in all 3-4 crashes. I always !! have it on a specific group that does not show an account name but only a (32) instead, as above..

[this is not the only thing related threads or groups to ssearch]
This time I got it on a normal folder grouped and not a saved search

All inclusive ;) even the crash

btw, Gecko/20081114 Shredder/3.0b1pre ID:20081114033300 [14 ok] seamed a bit better on thread and group. But I got my crashes eventually ..
again not necessarily on ssearch but normal folder

Quick search and if wait for F to display results type W will not work like a qiock FW type, same for fw quick and d after tree regen .. Anyway, I think is related to these, and of course a regression

(BTW, this seams slower in regenerating a small tree in q search, not to say about 1-2 second for each msg header, I bug separated ..)

Also, same for last comment, grouping does these on pop too, so not only imap. Just that imap is weird by default not having some column.
after several switch thread unthreaded group unthread etc
end up with threaded: tree looks like group (pic) and unthreaded looks same without twisty on group heads ..

Also some more crashes (not on this view, previous ones..)

retesting, gmail pop, another gmail imap

I. for normal folders, not searches:
[pop, imap]

 !-group by sort messes up tree and thread afterwards

*steps: imap go to a folder ("all" in gmail..) by sort (after date), groups collapsed
3.expand one group, collapse another
4.view/sort by/unthreaded 
-keeps the rows with group heads (no twisty or action)
5.change various sorters 
-keeps showing respective heads (tags, from etc) same as above
6.sort by threaded
-actually shows groups, though menu and sorters show thread
-twisty not effective for the bottommost
7.repeat collapse/expand on topmost or another
-eats msg 1 by 1, collapsing 1, never expanding it, collapse next, etc
8. if repreat 7 till no msg remain and it 'eats' itself, clean thread pane!
[NOT crashing]

--var: after 8 or at any time, if group by sort, it gets ok, if switch folders ok
--var: after 6, if repeat threaded/unthreaded, the groups move up and down for 1 msg, so that 1 msg is alternatively in two weeks and in old mail (this may be about that bug with aging msg and midnight or such, don't remember wich)


note that switches:
TH -> GR ok
TH -> UnTH ok
GR -> TH ok
GR -> UnTH is not ok!, this switch leaves useless group heads in tree and degenerates

I prefer imap, as some msg were copied from imap to pop, so ..
I'd say that unthreaded never cleans after grouping. Anyway, the view is unreliable.

II. for searches:

0.create a saved search cross acc[pop, imap], placed under local folders

 group by sort-

1. go to folder(search), switch to group by sort (by date)
2. all collapsed, expand some of them
(sometimes just expand bs and eat msg, sometimes, ok)
3. switch to unthreaded
-shows empty rows here and there, (they have location cell)
4. switch back to group
-only some groups shown (last week in this case)
-only couple of msg are shown, apparently from respective group
-no twisty, though dbclick and *\ work
5. switch repeadedly th/unth 
-these last msg are shown, nothing new

-- escape this view living the folder ..
6. switch sorters, from etc
-it switches to threaded mode instead of groups

Repro: always

I tried here the most common steps I can consistently repro.
Otherwise, there are variations of these. 
Eventually I hunted crashes, wich happend only once and I think have not submitted

-gmail pop and imap, crashes on 2 different profiles 
[I'll try havin yet another one to see ..]
-note that I hardly crashed it on 11-18 ver, but managed to do it on 11-19 like this, though just speculating ..

1. have a cross acc, pop/imap/local ssearch with simple criteria to get lot of msg
2. threaded, collapse some threads
3. unthreaded, should mess a bit hiding some msg
4. group by sort
5. unthreaded, again group by sort -groups look messy, twisty not really workin and not showin some elements
6. try to collapse/expand one group that does not react to click, by dbclick or repeated twisty clicks
7. tadaa [crash]

*this is hard to repro in perfect steps as the degenerated groups degenerate sometimes easier or slower

*as in prev comment, getting from groups to unthreaded messes up view 

*I played a lot with these on threads and groups on 11-18 and found mostly view mess, but not much crash. (Enough though to say a bug).  on 11-19 seams to get there quick

I did no quick search here, (that in comment 2 is besides the point)
I'll test some more, trying to start fresh and such
Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
confirming - I'll try to reproduce it here.
Ever confirmed: true
going from threaded to unthreaded in large views definitely causes some issues. I'll investigate.

this fixes the issue I was able to reproduce, which was:

define a saved search over several folders, with critera age in days < 20 days
turn on threading
leave folder, return

You should get hits in several folders for this to matter, but we weren't clearing the m_folders array, which meant the folders got out of sync with the view indices. I'd love to land this relatively soon so we can see how many issues it fixes...

[same saved searches etc ..]

not able to crash it anymore

the messy thread pane is still there, thread/unthread, gr by sort/unthread hiding msg or displaying blanc rows ..

also tried in XP, same

Whiteboard: [patch pushed, probably fixed?]
thx for landing this, Mark. ovidiu, were you trying with my patch, or without it?
I'm going to mark this fixed, because it definitely fixes a bug (probably lots of bugs, because every time we switch views in a cross-folder saved search, this bug might come into play). We should open new bugs for things that are still reproducible.

Threads and Group by sort ok now! tried with 30-69 -and more msg .. Not being able to repro anymore. It seams to show all and correctly. 

the only related, almost same behavior anyway is the g by sort for tags 
-did not expand the untagged, nor did it show any label on it,
-on switch to back to unthreaded it shows only the msg with tags (untagged not shown eventually disappear)
only once, dunno how to get there ..

Yay, thank you very much for your steps to reproduce, and for verifying the fix!

I'll try this...
cannot repro but scarcely, cannot give steps. 

I'll try more to push it on these and others (last 11-21 has other things, like switch sorters in g by s changes to threads always .. and other small stuff ..)

David: Should new bugs in this area be dependent on this or other? or just cc you?
New bugs, just cc me, thx!

[ kmon!, not again .. :(  ]

*threaded -> group by sort, -some untitled groups not expandable (key moment)
*imediately or [unthreaded, GbyS again]
*try to expand that untitled, no chance
*play with the other groups (+/-) and eventually .. uh

*try to collapse today or alike .. uh
Crash ID: bp-1f69f173-e024-434f-a433-ffb0c2081124
*restart, get unthreaded, threaded, unthreaded
*GbyS, still odd grouping ..
*change sort order from sorters area (date [v][^] ..)
*again ..
Crash ID: bp-c107a600-b7c4-4473-8082-6c0c02081124


Seams the not always precise steps, but always:
-from Threaded -> GbyS, gets some untitled, unexpadable groups or some msg not in groups, mess starts here ..
-somehere around expanding groups that are not sane I got the crashes, sometimes after playing around +/-, sometimes immediately, sometimes seams any change (sorters) is crash ..
[that is where previously got the most crashes too ..]

I'll test on xp to see if same.
same ver, but XP

Crash ID: bp-59fb97a2-69ba-4544-9bc3-a67842081124

*GbyS -odd empty lines or unexpandable groups
*try to +/- that or another ->crash

also crashed on vista when in same odd view, by say unthreaded
Seams once I get that odd GbyS degenerates whatever the changes ...
comment 20 and comment 21 have stacks which match the ones i've triaged in bug 467840 comment 1, so they don't belong to this bug.

seams gone for good
there are lots of visible changes anyway since these bugs. for one, switch the sorter leads to losing grouped by sort in favor of threaded (previously lead to a mess), not very convenient if not to be considered a bug as UI/procedure, but not messing or crashing.
