It is very slow to Mark All as Read in newsgroups. (Not tested with Mail because I usually delete my mail =)) Build ID: 2001051920 Newsserver: news.mozilla.org
I'm seeing this on CVS pulled at 1600 UTC today, 20th May. Linux, kernel 2.4.5. It took about 20s on a PIII 450 to mark some 40 messages in newsgroup uk.religion.christian
Not good - I wonder if we're committing the db or newsrc too frequently.
Confirm this bug using these builds. Linux (2001-05-21-08 trunk) Win32 (2001-05-21-11 trunk)

Ever confirmed: true
For the last few weeks using nightlies on Win2K, I've noticed this little quirk: If you go to a newsgroup, grab a bunch of messages, and then Mark All Read, it takes a long time. However, if you grab all your messages, go to ANOTHER newsgroup, and then go back to the first one, Mark All Read works instantly. (This happens whether used from keyboard shortcut or menu item.)

someone should test this again.. it may not be a bug anymore. In a current linux cvs build "Mark newsgroup read" is suddenly close to instantanous :)) Great performance boost.
We rewrote the frontend for that in the folder_outliner, so maybe we fixed this bug. If so, that's great news I suppose. :)

this is fixed for me. 1200 newsgroup messages marked read in under 2 secs from the keyboard. Thanks!
