In Seamonkey 2.49.1's Profile sub-folder I see 10 virtual folders. Is this normal behavior?

Tks.

What is a "virtual folder"?

therube,

No clue... I use SeaMonkeyPortable and in the program file's profile sub-folder I see the following:

virtualFolders.dat
virtualFolders-1.dat
virtualFolders=2.dat
virtualFolders-3.dat
virtualFolders-4.dat
virtualFolders-5.dat
virtualFolders=6.dat
virtualFolders-7.dat
virtualFolders-8.dat
virtualFolders-9.dat

I guess these files are from an extension? They are very small, either 10 or 0 bytes in size.

Do you use the Saved Search functionality? I think you'll find those "folders" are created during that procedure.

Appears that virtualFolders.dat is related to Mail (TB).
So it was mentioned, possible corruption issue, not allowing a successful saving of that data, or possible a permissions issue.

No. See my previous reply.

DanRaisch,

Would that be this: Edit/Preferences/History/Enable Form and Search History ???

No, I would expect that setting to be related to the browser side of the program, not the email side.
