In the tree view selecting two or more folders to mark as read only marks the first folder.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select 2 or more folders with unread mail in tree view ( I didn't use inbox subfolders)
2. Right click, select mark folders as read

Actual Results:  
First folder is marked correctly, other folders are unchanged

Expected Results:  
All selected folders should be marked as read

As an aside it would be nice to have a delete folders in this context too.

I only noticed this feature yesterday, it didn't work then & it doesn't on the latest nightly. FYI I use IMAP.
the regression is that we allow multiple folder selection in the folder pane. We didn't used to, and the backend doesn't support applying commands to multiple selected folders.

Apparently i didn't missed this in bug 296655.

The patch i have fixes the obvious issue, but there's some occacional funkiness if the remote count isn't up to date... bug 243029, also the problems in bug 240209 for news...

how about let folders...?

This has the potential to lock up the ui if the user selects a bunch of large folders and does this, but that should be pretty rare.
