Description

4 years ago
Str:
1. Create an imap or newsgroup account.
2. Select a folder in the account, then File menu -> Subscribe.
3. Tab to the tree of folders.
4. Inspect the accessible for the focus.
Expected: The role should be tree. It should contain children representing the possible folders.
Actual: The role is unknown. It has only one child, which is the column header list.

I know this did work to some extent some time ago, but it's broken in Thunderbird 24. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea when it broke.

Thanks for filing the bug. Note, please add regressionwindow-wanted when the regression bug has not yet been identified.

Anything in error console?  And has cause been identified and anyone attempted to hunt the regression range?

FWIW, here's all the subscribe bugs created since july 2013 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?list_id=11112682&short_desc=subscri&chfieldto=Now&chfield=[Bug%20creation]&query_format=advanced&chfieldfrom=2013-07-04&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&product=MailNews%20Core&product=Thunderbird

Is a good start

So this would have broken in the 22.0a1 cycle. Can you determine which build is first bad between

and
