About this Add-on
When messages sorted by date and sorted ascendingly (oldest on top), it will scroll to the bottom and display the last message. In all other sorting a first message on top will be showed. By default, folders remember previously viewed message, to prevent that enable "Force" setting, it will make sure that newest/first unread message is opened when folder switched.
This feature was once available in Thunderbird v1, but for some reason was removed, leaving useless "startup page" or blank page feature.
