I guess you mean folders (not accounts!).
Yeah I bailed out on multi-delete (in bug 296655), since the UI and backend are tangled together, and we have several different delete models to complitete matters... I guess we could just pop up one confirmation dialog per folder, but it's not ideal.

Yes, I meant folders. Thank you.

That would kind of suck but at least it would make it work.

yeah, + 1 to what Bryan said - it's better than deleting them one by one, and answering a confirmation prompt for each of those...

When you want to remove folders from Trash, it will also only delete the first from the selection, but no questions asked then.

Workaround for the original issue:
select multiple folders and drag them to Trash. It will throw up the questions one-by-one (first for 'are you sure', and the second for informing about filterrule-changes if there are).
