Description of problem:
As soon as finish setting up a new pop email account(i.e. gmail pop) and click "Finish", an alert window "This folder is being processed.Please wait until processing is complete to get messages."  And then thunderbird will not get any messages unless user click "Ok" button. Moreover if user click the button a little later, and then will be warned "Time Out". Usually, the alert window will popup only when user click "Get Mail" again while thunderbird is getting new messages. But user really did nothing but click "finish" after creating a new account.

Are you using thunderbird as root? Don't do it -- things won't work for you and it is officially not-supported. Please, retry with normal user.

I just used normal user to set up an account in latest version of TB, still get this problem. Any updates?

Confirmed this problem is different between those in the list above although they are a bit similar. Would you please file a new file? Thanks so much.

We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=473515) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

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.

Thank you for the bug report.
