From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; 0.8.1) BuildID: 2001033020 In the three-pane (alternative layout, other not confirmed), if you drage a message from the messages list to the viewing area, the message is displayed before it is dropped. Weird. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open 3-pane 2.click on a message 3.drag it to the viewing area Actual Results: Message displays before the mouse button is released. Expected Results: Message only displays once it is dropped. Sorry if this is an unneccesary bug that someone's already working on.
Not sure what the bug is here. Since you select the message it automatically displays it. Thus it is displayed before you drop it. Or am i not understanding the bug properly.
Okay, this is just weird behavior and it has gotten better since the reporting. I think it's just not as easy to do now that mailnews has gotten faster. Try clicking on a message, holding down the mouse button, and dragging elsewhere (like out of the 3-pane, or into the folders pane) very quickly. The message won't display until you release of until you drag the message over the message display pane. Not a very important bug....
What I see with this is that when you click and hold on the message when it is not previously selected, the message header loads, and "Loading document..." is displayed on the toolbar. This happens in either 2-pane or 3-pane mode. I don't know if this is intended to happen this way, but this is not the original bug, marking this WORKSFORME. If it's not the intended way to function, another bug needs opened on it. Moz Build: 2001053104 Win32 User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010531
The message *always* gets displayed when you select it. That is the way it is intended to work. I don't know how else we could implement it, since selection always does the default action, and in this case, that is to display the message. Note, that if you use multiple selection using CTRL, we don't display each new message, but that is because CTRL is a modifier.
reopening. here's what 4.x does: it does not display the message until mouseup. so if you are displaying message X and then try to click and drag message Y to the trash, it should not display message Y.
accepting, but futuring.
Marking worksforme, as I can't reproduce the bug any more.
