annoying quirk: taskbar notification icon doesn't go away after reading new mail that was moved to local folders using message filters.

I have one IMAP account. I have added filters so that all incoming mail automatically gets moved to various local folders.
When I get new mail, the mail notification taskbar icon pops up. Thats fine.

But the problem is, when I read the new message(s) in my local folders, the taskbar mail notification icon still doesn't go away.
I have to click the IMAP Inbox folder (which is empty) to make it disappear. Can this be fixed please? Having to keep clicking
the IMAP/Inbox folder everytime I'm done reading new mail is getting to be a real pain. I decided to grin and bear it with Thunderbird 1.0,
but it's not fixed in Thunderbird 1.5 either. I'm surprised more people aren't complaining about this.

A quick scan of the bug database found lots of people complaining about similar things.
This looks like a major issue for alot of people.

New Mail notification is not disappearing once mail is read.. Multiple accounts

New Mail Notification Icon remains in Task Bar until manual "get new mail",

Running filters on folder doesn't update the unread mail indicator in folders pane.

Marking message read by filter causes Inbox to stay bold

New mail icon remains when filters have marked all new mail as read

I hope these problem can all be fixed as part of the Improvements to the alert notification for new mail
being worked on for Thunderbird 2.0

I know this thread is VERY old, but I couldn't find anything newer.
I'm running TB 91.1.2 on Win10 and I am seeing this issue with the emails that are moved to a local folder using a filter. I use Unified Folders and I find that I can clear the counter on the Taskbar icon by going to the individual folder that the email came into originally and was moved from by the filter.
Has anyone found a way to cure this without manual intervention?
