User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; it-IT; rv:1.9.0.5) Gecko/2008120121 Firefox/3.0.5
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.19 (20081209)

Right clicking (or ctrl-click) on a message, in the context menu to copy or move the message to a specific folder, in each folder's sub-menu there should be one option that enables to create a new sub-folder in that same folder, and that at the same time copies or moves the message there.

When you use the context menu on a message, in the Copy or Move section, after the option "copy here" or "move here" in the folders, there should be "Copy in a new folder" or "Move in a new folder" options in the same sub-menu.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on a message to open the context menu.
2.Go to "Copy to" or "Move to" in the context menu
3.Browse the folders and select one.
Actual Results:  
The options are missing

Expected Results:  
After the option "copy here" or "move here", there should be "Copy in a new folder" or "Move in a new folder".
Umm - duplicate of bug 153977?

mmm yes, sorry didn't find it when i posted it.
but that enhancement request is sitting there since 2002?
Yes, it seems so. With just one vote, it won't get better ...
Umm, sorry, the other one is a Seamonkey bug, so I suppose this is different.
Confirming RFE.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Similar to bug 466247 - IMO filter definition and M/C To should be based on the same UI element.
See also bug 536533 for a more generic solution idea.

This would be very helpful addition, I really don't understand why this has been pending for years.

Thank you Jens for sugesting an alternative. I have just tried the quicker-filer, however for the "allows something like this ...) you must type the full path including the account name from memory. I am sure there are some that can do this but not me or my users. Based on the history of this bug It looks like the functionality was lost some time ago. Sure would be great to have it back.

This looks like it should be merged with Bug 263032

No. There is auto-completion, and it works fine for me. Typing 3 or 4 significant characters usually suffices for me.

Best regards,

Jens
