Forgot to mention, if you were missing the Menu Bar, you can click the
middle icon of the three on the far right of the screen (next to the ? icon)
and select "Show Menu Bar" - to keep it on-screen permanently.

Sounds like you need to get the focus on one of the unwanted messages
first - then Ctrl+A and all the other normal Windows selection methods
should work for you - they seem to be working for me both in Quick Views and
via individual accounts.
