Steps to reproduce:

Steps in order:
i) Add a filter to select a subset of messages in my inbox
ii) Select a particular message from the subset
iii) Remove the filter by pressing X in the filter box
iv) Select a different message from the unfiltered set of messages

Actual results:

Some seconds after selecting my message in step iv), a very slow process reacting to the filter removal iii) changed the message focus back to the message that I selected in ii) (I have around 20,000 messages in my inbox, so this process is extremely slow and annoying - I can select a new message and try to start working, and up to 10 seconds later my selection is overridden)

Expected results:

After selecting a new message in step iv) my selection should have been honoured and not overridden by the asynchronous process trying to restore my selection at step ii)

Note that this behaviour has been present in Thunderbird for as long as I can remember (since around version 3 or so) but becomes steadily more annoying the more messages I have in my inbox

If you double-click the message, it stays open in another tab.
