Tabs display wrong messages after filter moves some messages to other folders!
Has anyone else had the same problem? If so can you help, please? (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1656728 = Bug Report 1656728)
What did you do? (steps to reproduce)
1. Opened some messages from various accounts in new tabs. 2. Ran filters on one account's Inbox including a filter that moves some messages to a subfolder of the Inbox.
What happened? (actual results)
Different messages substituted for moved messages in open tabs. Those changes were reflected in tab labels.
What should have happened? (expected results)
As has been the case for some time, even when a filter moves messages from one folder to another, tabs containing/displaying those messages should remain in their places onscreen and continue to contain/display those messages.

As what you are describing is by design, I would think everyone can replicate it. You have moved the message from the folder it is in and therefore it no longer exists in that location so the next message from that folder is displayed. Personally I would prefer the tab be closed in those circumstances but that is not how it currently works. Exactly the same thing happens when you press the delete key on the open message and for the same reason.
Why seek support for something you have already decided is a bug? This forum is for support, not opinion gathering. However as it is not a bug as such I will see if I can correct it there as well to an enhancement request.
Oops for me. Delete does close the tab. Perhaps it should close in this case as well.
