Actual results: the sub-folders are not displayed in the left window.Only after closing the mail program and re-opened, all sub-folders are visible. Expected results: If simultaneously with Seamonkey the email program get startet, in the left window in all e-mail accounts should be visible all the subfolders.
Can you try in SeaMonkey safe-mode? Help->Restart with Addons Disabled.
(In reply to Philip Chee from comment #1) > Can you try in SeaMonkey safe-mode? Help->Restart with Addons Disabled. The same fault as before
(In reply to Philip Chee from comment #1) > Can you try in SeaMonkey safe-mode? Help->Restart with Addons Disabled. By the way: The same behaviour at 3 different computers (windows 7) .
NOT reproducible as a general problem with SeaMonkey 2.39a1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0 from official download area) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit: 0. I created a batch with CD C:<seamonkey program folder> seamonkey.exe -mail 1. I launched batch by double click » SeaMonkey opens with “Mail” as active application, Accounts and folders expanded as I saw it when I closed SM last time in the Folder Pane (that one what's visibility is toggled with <f9>) 3. All the same when I launch SM without batch, but with Menu 'Edit → Preferences → Appearance → When SeaMonkey Starts up open with Mail & Newsgroups' But SOMETIMES reproducible with SM. For Example, I saw the problem as visible in screenshot with same version after additional tests: 10. Select Menu 'Edit → Preferences → Appearance ', create a Test profile with at least 1 email-account if no such one does exist → When SeaMonkey Starts up open with Mail & Newsgroups' 11. Exit → Launch SM 12. Menu 'Help → Restart with Add-ons disabled' » Launches with add-ons disabled 13. Menu 'Tools → Switch Profile → Test account' » Test account appears (I have “Clear private data when leave” enabled for this account 14. Menu 'Help → Restart with Add-ons disabled' » Launches with add-ons disabled 15. Menu 'Tools → Switch Profile → Normal account' » Mail & News appears with most accounts collapsed (only main folder expanded Additional info: a) often problem already appears in step 12, but not 100% reliable b) effect in step 15 in 3 tests 100% reliable. c) problem does exist for all tested account types IMAP, POP3, FEEDS, NEWS d) Might be related to or DUP of “Bug 748899 - When launching only the mail component, POP3 accounts in the folder tree are collapsed. e) Might be related to or DUP of “Bug 482869 - Remember collapsed/expanded state of subfolders after collapse parent” Expanded/collapsed state is not preserved across restarts” f) possibly other DUPs in <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?cmdtype=runnamed&namedcmd=DUPs745511> g) This one probably also affects TB and so is a “MailNews core” problem @reporter: h) Still a problem for you? if yes, please contribute information: i) did I describe your problem? k) how exactly do you launch SeaMonkey? l) Really only sub folders (inbox\subfolder and similar) or all folders affected, what would mean you only see account names? A screenshot would be fine m) Please tell more details concerning your accounts: POP3, IMAP? FEEDS? NEWS? n) Other preferences what might be affected o) was that a problem for you also in older versions?
Summary: Problem with sub-folders in seamonkey mail → Folders appear collapsed in Folder Pane when Launch with Mail & News as default application
Sorry, this problem was reported in the year 2012. I don't use SeaMonkey any more.
I use Thunderbird - up to now with no problems.
p) After some more research I doubt that the effect I see has the same roots as reporter's problem. The problem what appeared with 2.9 disappeared with 2.11, see Bug 748899 And I do not reproduce the Problem with EN-US SeaMonkey 2.26 (Portable) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 Build 20140428215944 ( Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit q) I doubt that Bug 482869 has to do with this one r) Due to version of appearance I mark this one as DUP of Bug 748899 For observation with current Versions I will open a new Bug Report.
