User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:6.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0.2 Build ID: 20110902133214 Steps to reproduce: Click on a message header Actual results: A different message was shown, while the "real" message was loading Expected results: A blank screen should have been shown, or a text "your message is loading". This effect isn't really new, but it is bothering me a lot because when I am using slow networks while travelling. This has been happening for a long time, I believe since version 3 or even earlier. It is easy to reproduce when you have a slow network, or a message with a huge attachment. (I am using IMAP)
To clarify: with "a different message", I mean "a previously displayed message". I am NOT alleging that TB is mixing up messages. This has happened for years both with XP and Windows 7. More detailed steps to reproduce: - display message list full screen - double click on message - message is displayed - close it - double click on different message - previous message is displayed until new message is downloaded, which can take from a fraction of a second to several minutes.

(In reply to Tilman from comment #1) Of course, this also depends on the content of the new message being displayed (text is rendered faster than HTML) and your PC/laptop specs.
I suspect that the bug has been fixed some time ago... I just realize the effect is no longer happening for me.
