The Edit | Select All menu command doesn't work as well as the shortcut Ctrl+A. Also I don't know what the Edit | Select | Flagged Messages command is supposed to do (no help yet) but I guess it should select messages that have the small flag icon in the list of messages "turned on". If so it doesn't work either. The menu command remains disabled even if there are some messages "flagged".
The Edit | Select | Flagged Messages not working is a separate bug. See bug 72823 for more details. As for your other bug I can't reproduce this on Linux (2001061021) can you please follow the bug writing guidelines, available from the QA menu and consider using the Bugzilla Helper for reporting future bugs: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/bugzilla-helper.html To complete this bug report, we need to know: 1. The build ID (seen in the titlebar) 2. The OS Version (I assume NT 4 from the OS field above) 3. Whether you tried Select all with focus on the list of messages or the text of the message.
Confirming. I'm seeing this using NS Build 2001061204 on Win98 (saw it yesterday too) Load folder. Click thread icon in thread pane to put into threaded mode. Click a message header to select it. Ctrl-A or Edit>Select All Nuttin happens. Can get command to work eventually, after switching windows, re-selecting, and other chicken-sacrifice type activity, but for a long time I thought it was completely broken.
