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 ?
Version: unspecified → 3.0
> Or what you are asking for is to change the defaults for the pref to True ? Yes. There is no use case for "false"
