thread pane loses saved search's folder location column when switching tabs
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20081230 Shredder/3.0b2pre thread pane loses saved search's location column when switching tabs, if last opened tab is a real folder 1. tab 1 is a saved search against multiple folders - it has a location column 2. right click any "real" folder and open in new tab 3. click back to tab 1 actual results: location column is gone for the saved search in tab 1 Workaround is open another saved search and the column comes back, but the behavior reflects poorly on tab UI. Reverse the order and no problem - the thread pane columns that stick are those of the last opened tab. Perhaps could be fixed by bug 259609, which I had marked wanted-thunderbird3? (because it seems simple, and useful). But the solution for the bug could be far simpler - just force location column every time one changes to a saved search tab. (xref bug 374551, which is about manually *removing* location column)
bienvenu, do you think bug 259609 would really be required to accomplish this, and who might be able to handle this in TB3 time frame?
no, I don't think bug 259609 would be required at all - we just need to make the tab switching code a little smarter. If asuth hasn't fixed this already in one of his tab patches, I can fix this.
(In reply to comment #2) > If asuth hasn't fixed this already in one of his tab patches, I can fix this. asuth, FYI this wouldn't be so bad, except leaving and returning the saved search folder (the workaround) doesn't remember the last accessed message, which is painful
Summary: thread pane loses saved search's location column when switching tab s → thread pane loses saved search's folder location column when switching tabs
Yes, I am planning to address this as part of the gloda-search changes. I'm going to try and clean up this whole area a bit more. However, this is probably a week out; if bienvenu would like to provide a quick patch for b2, that's also fine.

I'll have a quick look
Andrew, do you have time to look at this for b2? Otherwise, I can ping someone else for review. Basically, I moved some column updating calls into a shared method.
