I have a message filter that moves messages from IMAP/inbox -> IMAP/newFolder (based on "from" address) - this is the only message filter I use.  When new messages arrive, they are moved to the new folder (named "00stuff/svn"), and that folder is marked as having unread messages (ie. folder "svn" is shown in bold text, say "svn (2)" if 2 messages were filtered).  Now, when I then click on the "svn" folder, these (say 2) unread messages are now marked as read, even though I haven't clicked on them yet.

With the previous/expected behaviour, the unread messages would remain marked as unread when I click on "svn" folder.

I attach some screenshots to illustrate:
1) 1 new message has been filtered.  Note the bold "svn (1)".
2) I then click in "svn" folder.  The unread message get marked as read, even though I haven't read/clicked on them yet.  Note that this screenshot is taken just after I've clicked on "svn" folder and I have scrolled right to the top/newest message in the list.

My system is:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:12.0) Gecko/20120429 Firefox/12.0 SeaMonkey/2.9.1

PS. I think this has been happening for a week or so, which roughly corresponds to the release of SM 2.9 - I can't be exactly sure of when this started though, because I didn't make an exact note of it.

There were several problems with mail in 2.9 including Filters. But these should have been fixed in 2.9.1

Well I've just disabled the message filter for now (since it's easy enough for me to manually move the messages to a new folder).

Strange - I just manually dragged 2 unread messages from (IMAP) inbox to svn folder and I see the same behaviour (ie. when I then click in svn folder, these 2 unread message are now marked as read).  Don't know if this will help?

Unless I'm asked to try anything else, my plan is just to wait and test again once a new SM is released.

Testing with latest version: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:13.0) Gecko/20120604 Firefox/13.0 SeaMonkey/2.10

Same behaviour - manually dragging 2 unread messages to a new folder and then these 2 messages are marked as read after clicking on the new folder.

If I can be bothered, I might try some more tests with a fresh profile: SM 2.10 and latest TB.

Well just tested with a fresh/test profile using TB 13.0 (en-GB version) and I see same behaviour when dragging unread messages.

NOT reporducible with DE SeaMonkey 2.35(γ)  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:38.0 nightly by Adrian Kalla)  Gecko/20100101 Build 20150616034436 (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit

I did lots of variations with drag and drop, drag and drop paste from inbox to inbox-subfolder or account folder, I never saw that dropped unread mails became "read".

But I am not able to create new subfolders for my new test folders, that only works for inbox. I will test that later.

a) do you still see the problem with current SeaMonkey version and a current OS?
b) If yes, can you reproduce your problem with a new subfolder below inbox and 
   manual drag and drop from inbox to that new subfolder?

c) Due to Comment 4 this one might be a mail-core problem.

No response, so I close this one for now.
@Reporter: Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you still can reproduce the problem with a current SeaMonkey version and a current OS and if you can contribute a step by step instruction due to <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/QA/Bug_writing_guidelines>  (containing every key press and every mouse click) how to reproduce the problem reliably.
