User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Thunderbird 1.5 final In 1.0 branch I was able to search in the body of NNTP messages. Now there are only the search fields "subject" and "sender". For the default local mail folders I see all options in the search dialog. The profile comes from Thunderbird 1.0 where this worked (and it was the main reason why I used Thunderbird instead of Outlook Express, the latter one does not allow to show the message thread from the search results, which is/was possible with Thunderbird). This lost feature a really deep impact because I use Thunderbird only as Newsreader at work. Seems I have to go back to 1.0.x I will try it out with a new profile on Monday, maybe this helps. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. NNTP folder 2. Menu "Edit" -> "find" -> "Search Messages..." 3. combobox of searchable fields contains only "subject" and sender.
Same here with "TB 1.5": Search Messages in newsgroup folders is limited to "subject" and "from" I never used 1.0 branch. But my Mozilla 1.7.11 also limited the search as above. I doubt that this deserves severity "major". Especially as it's rather a RFE.
Sorry Daniel, you are right ! Full text search cannot be done in 1.0 either. It was Friday 13th when I filed this "critical bug", this might explain why I "remembered" a non existing feature. I change it to an enhancement request. Would be great to have this feature anyway.
