Current Behavior: The expected behavior of selecting the menu item View -> Messages -> [ ] Unread is unclear when messages are being displayed in "threaded" mode. Desired Behavior: The text for the "unread" menu item changes based on "threaded" state. For example: View -> Messages: [ ] All [ ] Unread ------------ [ ] Threaded ------------ View -> Messages: [ ] All [ ] Threads with Unread ------------ [X] Threaded ------------ This is assuming that /all/ messages within a thread containing unread messages are displayed even when the "unread" menu item is selected. In bug 68925 I suggest that this is the expected behavior. BTW, I'm not particularly fond of the text "Threads with Unread", but "Threads with Unread Messages" is too long. Perhaps "Unread Threads" is clear enough.

Sounds like a good idea to me.
looks like this is done in latest builds?

fyi, "View: Messages: Threaded" was never implemented correctly and there is a bug to remove it. see bug 127881. (it is working as sort but displayed as a checkbox)
This bug is no longer relevant, is it? The View | Messages menu has been substantially reworked.
This bug makes no sense anymore in the current menu architecture; =>Invalid

The 'Threaded' item is back (due to work in bug 72493), but the View menu still has separate Messages and Threads subitems.
