I don't see this problem on 1009 branch build on Win XP with JA locale. (buildID
= 2002100911) Kasumi, do you still see this?

Tested this on 1009 branch again. I got the same error when I searched AOL
mails. It might be an expected bahavior. But once I clicked on OK on error, it
didn't occur again.

Search is not supported on AOL server.

When you launch a "search messages" from the top folder (corresponding to the
account name), it seems it enters into a loop. No found result however.
This problem does not exist when you start the search from any other folder.
mass re-assign.

Does "AOL server" even still exist?  (I have no idea.)  Is it still supported 
by Mozilla?  And if so, does this bug still pertain?

Updating summary from generic statement to something reflecting the actual report.
Summary: Search Messages doesn't function → Search Messages shows error for AOL server
