Unwelcome GUI Focus When Selecting Threads

Reported by Rob Tull | June 19th, 2015 @ 06:24 PM

When in the inbox, I'll often use the "Root of Thread" hotkey to view the entire thread of a message. However, this has the very annoying feature of moving the focus to the mailbox list instead of keeping focus in the message list - meaning a bunch of extra key presses are required to jump through the thread messages.

In addition, once done with the thread view, I'll hit escape to return back to the original mailbox view, which again puts focus on the mailbox list instead of the message list, requiring that I tab focus back into the message list.

In both cases, I would prefer (I would argue that it is optimal) for the focus to remain on the message list.

Note that Option+Clicking the "Thread" button keeps the focus on the message list. However, this is not optimal because it requires a click. Also, strangely, when using Esc to exit from the thread view the active focus goes to the Headers view toggle of the individual message.
