Thunderbird 3 annoyance
 
I'm having a little annoyance with TBird 3, and was wondering if anyone
was experiencing the same thing and/or had a workaround.


I have a large tree of folders in TBird, from 2 different IMAP accounts.
So I use the "Unread Folders" view, in conjunction with the
mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new config setting.


Problem is that since the upgrade to TBird 3, when TBird grabs new
email, it automatically selects a different folder in the left ("Unread
Folders") pane. This is really irritating. I really want TBird to just
stay on the folder I've selected - no matter whether it gets new email
or not.


Anyone know how to fix this? Is there some magic new config setting for
this?


I tried googling on this, but it's hard to find good search terms to
describe the problem.


Thanks,

DR

maybe is not a matter of configs. maybe this is really a bug and should
be submitted upstream.

Could be. If so, though, I'd like to get some more info on the problem
first.


Anyone else experiencing this issue with TBird automagically selecting a
different folder?


Thanks,

DR

Looks like it is ... and somebody already has:

DR,

Likewise, I have 2 imaps configured with ~ 60 folders total. I just use the
inboxes for the imap itself and then use the normal threaded view and/or sort by
sender and move messages into their respective folders. I haven't worked with
seive yet or taken the time to setup procmail beyond spamassassin. I haven't
noticed any changes. I just rely on the folder highlighting and the count for
new mail message ID. Dunno if it helps, but here is a small screenshot of the
view that provides.

Dude - you badly need to use "Unread Folders" mode! :-)

See "Only display folders with unread messages" on this page:
