1) Create or identify mail filter under tools/mail filters
2) Use mouse to toggle mail filter status (e.g. enabled to disabled)
3) Close filter window
4) Open filter window - mail filter is toggled (e.g. disabled).
5) Use space bar to toggle status (e.g. disabled to enabled).
6) Closed Mail filter window
7) Open Mail filter window

Expected behavior:
8) Mail filter is toggled (e.g. enabled).

Actual behavior:
8) Mail filter is not toggled (e.g. disabled).
Michael, is this a regression from version 2?

sev > minor because there is a workaround (surprised you missed that)

note: the first filter selected requires two spacebars to toggle Enable checkbox

I don't know if it is a regression in that I've never seen this error occur in TB2, it just worked normally in TB2.

Two spacebars did not fix this (it just removes the check).  One space toggles and a check appears, but it doesn't save it.  I don't know why a second spacebar, which would remove the check, would be correct or intuitive as a solution, or why this would be a work around (it isn't, when the check is removed, or enabled, it doesn't change state if it is done with the space bar).  No matter what state the filter is in, no amount of even or odd spacebar taps will change the state after closing and reopening.
the workaround is click. didn't mean to imply second spacebar works, as you found.

whether it fails in v2 is a nit but figured I'd ask because you probably wouldn't have noticed it if you didn't already know it worked in v2.  Your statement indicates it did, so this would be considered a regression.  So adding appropriate keyword
