If after reading a message containing primarily text (versus html ad) you delete it from the message list, the message body will occasionally (it seems to happen about once a week) overwrite the next un-read message.  If I go into gmail from a browser, the message still exists on the server, however it will never appear correctly in Thunderbird regardless of restarting the program or computer.

I unfortunately can't say for certain whether the message is open in a tab when deleting the message as I am having trouble duplicating the problem.

Are you using gmail imap? 3.1.7 will most likely fix this.

It seems to be fixed.  There is on occasion a delay of 5-10 seconds for the message to refresh and the old message to disappear.  This can happen whether the message was deleted or not.  It will ultimately refresh though.
