Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.23) Gecko/20110920 Firefox/3.6.23
Build ID: 20110920075126

Steps to reproduce:

I right click a message and select "Move to", then "Recent".


Actual results:

I get a list of folders to move the message to, but the folder names displayed, contain only the last component. I have (eg.)

account/project1/tickets
account/project2/tickets
...

In the context menu, I see only "tickets" and have no way of determining, whether the "ticket" folder indicated belongs to project1 or project2. This is rather useless.


Expected results:

At least for potentially ambiguous folder names, the full folder path should be displayed. Also, the length of this list should be customizable.
