A) Sticky keys are disabled:

1. Click to select one message in message list.
2. Press and hold [shift] key
3. Click another message in message list.
Result: All messages between are selected and this is correct behaviour.

B) Sticky keys are enabled (to enable sticky keys press [shift] 5 times and choose [yes].

1. Click to select one message in message list.
2. Press [shift] key (do not hold since you enabled sticky keys)
3. Click another message in message list.
Result: Second message is not selected and messages between are not selected neither.

The same situation is with [ctrl] key (selecting multiple messages at different positions) and also at folder view (while selecting folders).

It looks like event.shiftKey is true for the mousedown event but not for the click event. It is also false in nsEventStateManager::CheckForAndDispatchClick. Not sure where it might be getting set or cleared.

Greg, did this work in version 9?

I don't know, because I had not used sticky keys before I replaced my PC with a laptop a month ago.
