User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/12.0.742.122 Safari/534.30 Steps to reproduce: tried to check my mail Actual results: The status bar at the bottom of the inbox always used to show how many messages were downloading or not yet downloaded. This was very useful. I just upgraded to TB 5, and I don't see this feature. Expected results: It should have showed number of emails yet to be downloaded and there should have been a progress bar as well.
July 3: NOW IT DOES SHOW number of emails to download, and number downloaded! I have no idea of what made the difference. The version number is still 5.0 precisely, so it's not that I've absent-mindedly upgraded. I don't understand it. And, so far no one has either confirmed or denied the phenomenon in a forum. The problem was consistently there for weeks.)
Some incompatible extension ?

(I've extended its compatibility by the method advised by Mozilla, and by the writers of BiDi long since) Nothing external has changed.

On second thought, Ludovic Hirlimann's suggestion might well be right on target! I just noticed the date of this version of BiDi (8-2!). I haven't logged things well enough to be absolutely sure. Thanks, LH.
Hum start in -safe-mode and tell me if things work better (see http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/Safe-Mode).
In reply to "Hum start in -safe-mode and tell me if things work better (see http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/Safe-Mode).", Things couldn't possibly work better because they work perfectly. (Read Comment 1, of July 3.)
Apologies. I'm confusing August and July! I updated the extension on August 2. (It had been out for weeks, but I don't use TB regularly.) I noticed that things were working properly on July 3. So, there's no visible explanation for the fact that it has been working perfectly since July 3.
My confusion is worse. I posted in another forum on August 3 that it was suddenly working just fine (for my TB and for my wife's as well). That's why I thought that the fact that BiDi had updated for us on August 2 was the explanation. But in this thread the date of the similar post is "July 3". I don't understand how that could be. So, I'm embarrassed and stumped. The dating of Comment 1 here, I wonder if it could possibly, somehow, be wrong. Something, or someone (if I do say so myself) is nuts.
so are things fixed for you ?
I don't understand the question. When I wrote "July 3: NOW IT DOES SHOW number of emails to download, and number downloaded! I have no idea of what made the difference..." that was what I meant. And that also indicated the remaining puzzle. I wouldn't say "Things are fixed", as if we fixed it, but TB is working fine for me.
