User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3

Older message displayed if sort order for date column is reversed and current message is deleted.  Arguably, users want to always see the most recent message after a delete regardless of sort order.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Step 0: Do not change default (false) setting of mail.delete_matches_sort_order
Step 1: Sort message list order by date, with most recent messages at the top of the list.
Step 2: Select a message and view in full screen (or separate tab)
Step 3: Delete message

Actual Results:  
Next message displayed is older.


Expected Results:  
Display more recent message regardless of sort order

Fix: Change mail.delete_matches_sort_order to "true"
I don't understand why this would be a bug - as it seems the pref is working. Or what you are asking for is to change the defaults for the pref to True ?

Yes.  There is no use case for "false"
Validating the RFE. Adding our Users experience guru. Putting in the right component.
