I am presently using Thunderbird version (20060501) and FC-5. Until updating to FC-5 and the latest Thunderbird I could prevent Thunderbird from asking "Advance to next unread message in ----------?" by making the following configuration changes which can no longer be done. It appears that the configuration files have changed and I'm unable to find where to stop this annoying "feature!"

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

In ~/.thunderbird/default/<some_characters>/user.js add

# How to handle the Advance to next unread message in <x> folder
# prompt.
# Settings:
#     0 - Always go to the next folder without prompting
#     1 - Ask before going (default behavior)
#     2 - Don't prompt and don't go to the next folder with unread
#         messages
user_pref("mailnews.nav_crosses_folders", 0);

(or chose 2 if you do not want to automatically go to next folder with
unread messages)

Does the following link help you?


Yes, definitely!  I searched for that file and never found it.

Use the built-in config editor:

click the Config Editor... button

In the filter field, enter mailnews.nav

Double click the one item
enter your new value....

Sure beats trying to find the magic file. :-)

Though you still need to know the magic values. ;-)

It would be very cool, if, when an item is selected in the config editor, pressing F1 would show the comments explaining the different values. RFE? ;-)

Neat, I didn't know that "Config Editor" existed. It has the right value in it now that I made the change and added user.js but that might have been easier. As you say you have to know the value to enter but I already had that in my notes. I keep extensive notes on Linux configuration, etc.

Thanks for the tip.
