Description

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.2+) Gecko/20010708

I'll describe what we have in 4.x and missing in Mozilla.

1. Open 4.x 3-pane Messenger Window
2. Have enough messages so that in the header pane there are more than can be 
viewed so scrolling is needed
3. Adjust header/body pane separator so that the last visible header is visible 
only partially
4. Click on this header with the mouse
5. Observe how the pane scrolls a step up to make this header fully visible 
_and_ get the next one partially visible and immediately accessible

This allows to walk quickly through your messages with only single mouse clicks 
doing nothing special to scroll the view.

I would love to see the same behaviour in Mozilla. And to my understanding 
should not be so hard to fix too.
updating summary.

Right, it is different. Both look like a huge advantage in usability though.

Should it work for all outliners or only for threadpane ?
