messages being called "unread" after I read them

In Thunderbird, if you go into Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> 
Reading and Display, how do you have it configured to mark messages as 
read? For example, in my set up, I have messages automatically marked as 
read if I view them for five seconds. If I'm in a message for less than 
five seconds, it'll still show up as unread.
