Steps to reproduce:

nothing, just go to in box and while working there the "compact folders" pops up every few seconds.  There is a check mark in the compact folder drop down to compact as needed.  Removing or checking box no change.  Hard to work in folder due to this popup

Actual results:

pop up box drop down box on and off

Expected results:

When auto compact is checked this should be done in background
There are problems with the popup appearing too often (see bug 725810), but it should be only once per hour.

Do you allow the compation when it pops up?
What is your server type (POP, or IMAP) and how many accounts do you have?
Depends on: 725810
Did you mean to refer to bug 750569 instead?
Yes, that one too, but 725810 may be quite related too and has a patch.
Depends on: 750569
Very strange. Is this still happening? What does "working there" mean? Are you deleting messages? For this to happen, I think the timer logic would have to be all wrong, because we shouldn't be prompting you more than once an hour.
No longer depends on: 725810

Jim, is your issue fixed in version 13?
