Build ID: 20120312181643

Steps to reproduce:

I have two Imap accounts in Thunderbird, both with multiple folders.  One account is mostly inactive, so I leave the folders collapsed in the folder pane.  

I hit N or click on "Move to the next unread message".

Actual results:

It moves to the next unread message, but also expands the collapsed folder (which doesn't contain any unread messages).  

Expected results:

The collapsed folder should have stayed collapsed.

When I press 'n' to go to next unread message, it first asks "Advance to next unread message in foldername?". You should get the same window.

No, several years ago I turned that off.  I thought the behaviour of no dialog was now the default, because I didn't spot it as an option in the preferences anywhere.  Here are my "modified preferences":

Do you have extensions installed ?

Can you try in Thunderbird's -safe-mode ?

Safe mode does appear to fix it.  I was going to try disabling the extensions one at a time to see if one of them was causing it, but the problem seems to have gone away now, even when I run in regular mode.

I'll post again if it comes back...
