When I use Quick Search ("Subject or sender contains") for searching for messages, I need to perform the search twice when the word I search for contains umlauted characters (or perhaps also accented characters, haven't tested). Example: When I search for "aly", it matches both "aly" and "Aly". When I search for "Aly", it matches both "aly" and "Aly". That's OK. When I search for "äly" (a with an umlaut: ä), it matches only "äly". When I search for "Äly" (A with an umlaut: Ä), it matches only "Äly". That's not OK, since I have to search twice.

Darn, this seems to be a duplicate of bug 284856. Sorry for the spam, I tried to search for duplicates but came up with nothing.
Do you have IMAP? =)
Severity: minor → normal
Yes. I was referring to searches in IMAP folders.
So, let's mark it as dupe for now. Please reopen, if bug 284856 will be fixed and you'll still see this bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 284856 ***
