I didn't see a Thunderbird Beta forum, so please point me to the right place if this isn't correct.

I am currently running TB Beta 112b5 on two machines right now. After the update a weird thing happened to my "Favorite Folders" Section. One of the machines was fine. The other ended up adding an account folder for one of my e-mail accounts. There was no option to "remove" it like normal Favorite Folders.

I couldn't find any setting to remove it and even looked in Config Editor. I removed the account completely and, yes, it removed the Favorite Folders entry. However, the minute I added the account back, it returned.

The only fix I found was to copy the profile from the other machine over, delete the current profile, and replace it. That worked.

Is this a bug in the beta that just happened to manifest on one machine and not the other, or is there a Favorites Folder setting I missed that somehow added the account folder rather than an individual folder/subfolder? Thanks.

I am not seeing anything in the Bugzilla bug tracker, anything on the beta list. I suggest you try on the beta list and see if anyone there has something to offer.
