Thunderbird - Create a quick keyboard action to move from the message list back to folder list

Making moves

This is a suggestion from a Mastodon user: "Can a way be put in to get back to folders, maybe with escape?"

Thunderbird staff are planning to add a quick way to get from a mail folder to the message list for that folder. Right now people can use F6 (or Fn + F6). Work is planned in bug 1859568 to also use the Enter key as a quick shortcut.

In response to that planned work, a Thunderbird user suggested a keyboard shortcut to also get back to the folder from the message list.

Has something already like this existed in past versions of Thunderbird?

Is there support for this change?

Please see the Idea for further discussion. I posted this as a Discussion instead of an Idea initially.
