After setting up filter rules to file incoming emails from a specific email
address to be filed into a foulder, if I quit Thunderbird I have to re-establish
the filter rules. This failure occurs every time I use Thunderbird.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select received email for which I would like to establish a filter.
2.Select "Create Filter From Message" from the Message drop box.
3.Filter name is email senders address, select Match any of the following radio
button, select "sender" from the left drop down box, select "is" from the drop
middle down box, input senders email address in right box.
4.In the lower box of the filter rules box select "Move to folder:" in the check
box, select the desired sub-folder under the main account floder to which you
want mail sent to, select "OK".
5. Mail received from selected sender is filed into appropriate folder.
6. Quit Thunderbird.
7. Restart Thuderbird; filter no longer is set.

Actual Results:  
When I restart Thunderbird my email filter has stopped working.

Expected Results:  
The email filter should have still been active.
