Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0)

Steps to reproduce:

When a new messages is received it appears in bold font text the messages list. Fine so far.

When I now click one time on such a message line (but do NOT open the message in a window/new tab - just click once on it) then the boldface turns into "normal" font.

Again: This happens although the message is NOT opened by an explicit double click.

The corresponding option (Advanced->Reading & Display) offers only a time depending recognition 
when a message is read (e.g. after 5 seconds). But it does NOT offer an option: "Mark as read if message is opened in new tab by double click".

Could you include this option in next release?


Actual results:

see above


Expected results:

message line should stay in bold as long as it is NOT opened by double click

 (easy to implement)
