Did you consider creating a custom view (by customizing the main toolbar to add the "mail view" widget and than using it to create a custom view) or by creating a virtual folder (using saved search) that specified it should list only already read messages? It's also possible to change the sort order using "view -> message -> sort message body by" to use the Read status in sorting.

There is a sort preference add-on at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunde ... src=search but its not clear whether it adds any features that you can't already do using the config editor.

If none of them are viable alternatives I don't understand what you are trying to accomplish. Could you provide a longer explanation, and some more background information such as whether you are using a POP or IMAP account.
