Hello. Is there a way to make SORT BY THREADED and EXPAND ALL THREADS a default? Several times during any one session, as well at start up, I have to select both SORT BY THREADED and EXPAND ALL THREADS. This is a critical failure. It is easy to miss important emails (responses). Also, the need to focus on that issue and having to repeatedly make the sorting selections is very disruptive. Thank you.

Good news/bad news. In config editor, you can change mailnews.default_view_flags from 1(threaded) to 0(unthreaded). But that does not apply to preexisting folders, only to new folders. I filed a bug report on this, but the developers believe their changing default to threaded is the best move.
