This is a reopen of bug 498415, which is not entirely resolved.  See: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=498415

Unfortunately, this problem continues, but I've been able to more readily
reproduce it.

By selecting the first item in an RSS folder, and then shift selecting the
remaining items, and hitting the Delete key, the Space key will often not then
advance to the next RSS folder with items.

There may be some relation to the number of items that were selected - I was
not always able to repeat, but in several attempts on different folders, the bug shows itself frequently. I was able to repeat this time and again on
various RSS folders.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Simply select all messages, hit the Delete key
2.Space to advance to the next group frequently does not advance to next unread group
Actual Results:  
Space to advance to the next group frequently does not advance to next unread group

Expected Results:  
Space should advance to next folder w/unread items.

Yeah i actually seem to reproduce this maybe 30% of the times using those steps.

If i go Go | Next Message when that happens (it's enabled) i get
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80550018 [nsIMsgDBView.getMsgHdrAt]"  nsresult: "0x80550018 (<unknown>)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://messenger/content/folderDisplay.js :: FolderDisplayWidget_get_selectedMessage :: line 1731"  data: no]

I don't see any messages in the error console when this occurs.  Maybe that's not the correct place for me to look?
I only see it in the error console if i go through the menu, not if i just hit space.
Summary: Space shortcut key does not always advance to next unread folder group. → advance to next unread folder doesn't always work after deleting all in folder

perhaps not unlike what happens when a folder gets compacted?

I'm seeing this in Thunderbird 48.5.0 (in Ubuntu). After deleting all messages in an inbox, trying to press ‘n’ to navigate to an unread message that later arrived often fails to do anything. The menu command doesn't work, either, but I can press ‘f’ to focus the message and then ‘n’ will work again.

Today when it failed, I found this message in the error console:

Timestamp: 2017-04-26 11:33:01
Error: An error occurred executing the cmd_nextUnreadMsg command: [Exception...
