Description Daniel Walsh 2005-08-19 19:01:39 UTC
Description of problem:

Click on sorting inbox by date
"^ indicator" sorts email by date with Todays emails at top.
Now click on Save As.  
Select Browse
Click on date.
"^ indicator" sorts files by date with Todays files at bottom.
I think the first method is more natural...

Isn't this expected behavior?   If you click on it a third time, doesn't it sort
with today's at the top again?  i.e. its a toggle.   Many directory sorters work
the same way.

The problem is the indicator direction.  In one window "v" means sort from
earliest date to latest, in a different window the same symbol means sort from
latest date to earliest.

Yes, I can confirm that this problem is alive and kicking on
thunderbird- However, I believe that this is very upstream bug
and I wasn't able to find in the upstream bugzilla any bug to close it against.

Therefore, please file a bug report in the Mozilla bugzilla located at

Once you've filed your bug report upstream, if you paste the new bug URL here,
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.

Thanks in advance.
