Dan, thanks for the spin-off. (In reply to comment #0) > It would be interesting to know if it's possible to reproduce this behavior > using the mouse, or if it's a keyboard-only thing. No, currently you cannot reproduce this behaviour using mouse only, because you can't scroll second row of collapsed contacts into view without using <tab>. Perhaps this might be possible in rare cases after Bug 499989 gets fixed, hopefully restoring some sort of "collapse" button. Then you could expand multiple contacts, focus a contact in second row (using right-click), re-collapse, view another message, which might then have the same effect. Just guessing, though.
Summary: message header: Focus disappears when moving through collapsed list of many contacts e.g. in cc or to header (more-button, twisty, many addresses) → message header: when tabbing into row x (>1) of collapsed list of many contacts in some header, viewing another message will also have row x scrolled into view, sometimes no header shown at all (many addresses)
