I right-clicked on 'Local Folders' and selected the option to 'Empty Junk'. Thunderbird deleted the Mail directory in the profile directory of the user (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\Computer Owner\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\3b0ngwgx.default\Mail). After rebuilding the directory, a subsequent test of the same bug eliminated all the folders in the Thunderbird pane but did not delete the Mail directory on disk. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right-click on 'Local Folders' 2. Click on 'Empty Junk' 3. Cry when all your saved emails disappear Actual Results: Thunderbird deleted the Mail directory in the profile. Expected Results: Thunderbird will empty the Junk folder.
When I try this, I cannot select "Empty Junk" because it is does not appear when I right-click Local Folders. (I am running current 3.0b3pre) Is there some trick to getting the "Empty Junk" to appear with the right click?
Could have been a bug where we displayed the option (and shouldn't have) which we have fixed since beta 2. cc'ing some people who may know.
I had Beta2 build 2 on my system ( which was slightly prerelease) and it also did not show the option.
Don't recall any bug for this, my best guess is some extension problem... Richard, please try with all extensions disabled. Also try a build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-comm-1.9.1/ as the context menu show/hide logic was pretty much rewritten (to handle multi) select last week.
My apologies. I did not remember ever having added any extensions in Thunderbird. It was Mail Tweak. I removed it and the context option went away.
