Thunderbird sort default is never respected (or is it just me?)

    Where is the option to make the sort respect the defaults?

    You can certainly set my personal sort in Thunderbird to
    View->Sort by->DATE:DESCENDING:THREADED

    But, no matter what the default sort order is, when you press the
    sort-by-thread icon, your default sort order is totally ignored (try it
    with a default sort order of DATE:DESCENDING:UNTHREADED for example).

    This sort button always sorts first by DATE:ASCENDING:THREADED no matter
    what sort order you initially had.

    Of course, if you click the sort button again, Thunderbird finally sorts by
    DATE:DESCENDING:THREADED
    But by then your mailbox has been turned topsy turvy twice.

    Worse yet, even though, after a few too many button clicks, you've now
    sorted by DATE:DESCENDING:THREADED, the actual threads themselves are
    always sorted by DATE:ASCENDING:THREADED (go figure).

    So, this begs the two questions:
    1. What is the setting that allows the sort button to sort by
    DATE:DESCENDING:THREADED with a single click of that button?

    2. Even with the sort respecting the default set in #1 above, where is the
    setting to have each thread sorted by the SAME default (eg
    DATE:DESCENDING:THREADED for each thread)?

    Or, is this not possible?
    Thank you in advance,
    Debbie
