Steps to reproduce:

I attempted to create a Message Filter and created a new folder whilst this dialogue was open. 

Actual results:

The list of folders to 'Move Message to' was not refreshed and I had to close and reopen the dialogue.

Oddly, I could not replicate this issue a second time.

Expected results:

The list of folders to 'Move Message to' should have refreshed and shown the complete list of folders - not the list as it was when the dialogue was first opened.

Is it an IMAP folder or local folder?

I encountered this issue with local folders. I haven't tested it for IMAP.
Do you have extensions installed ?

No I don't, just a vanilla Thunderbird install

I can partially reproduce it on Win XP.
Only happens (folder not appearing) when the new folder is added as a subfolder of an existing folder that is not already expanded in the list (the target of Move action).
That means creating a folder under <account name> works, under a folder that already has subfolders works. But creating a new subfolder where no other subfolders are does not work. In the left pane folder list, such parent account gets a "+" icon. Tested on TB10, Inbox and also other folders under <account name>. Tested on POP3 account and Local folders, no IMAP.
Ever confirmed: true

I think today TB uses the new folder picker in the filter editor. It no longer has list of folders that can be "expanded", it uses submenus. That may have fixes this bug as the new picker has completely different code and does have listeners to update the list when new folders are created.
I can no longer reproduce this bug. If anybody can still see the problem, please speak up.
