Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Thunderbird 3. You can read the release notes, or download the darn thing. "If you like Firefox's tabbed browsing, you're going to love tabbed email. Thunderbird 3's tabbed email lets you load emails in separate tabs so you can quickly jump between them. Search results open in a new tab too. New tools like our timeline and filtering tools will help you pinpoint the email you're looking for, whether it’s the one from yesterday, last month, or several years ago."

highlight (say) 20 messages in the drafts folder & hit enter, only 8 will open no matter how many you select.


That is probably a feature. Just imagine you selected a 100 messages and accidentally hit enter!

Given the amount of EMail I have, it's not outside the realm of possibility that I would do something like that intentionally. I suspect TB would become unresponsive for a minute or two while it opened all of the messages - but I'd prefer that to opening 100 messages eight at a time.

I would expect a friendly "Are you sure?" dialog if I exceed the reasonableness threshhold.

"You seem to be doing something crazy, like opening 100 messages at once. We think this is nuts and are giving you a chance to cancel this action. If you choose to continue we really will try and open 100 windows, but we have no idea if your computer can take that.

Continue?

[I understand, do it anyway] [No! Cancel!]"
