LDAP "directory server properties -> Advanced" doesn't work
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/18.104.22.168 Build Identifier: version 22.214.171.124 (20060308) None of the settings in the Advanced tab of Directory server properties seem to do anything. In particular the search filter (default '(ObjectClass=*)') doesn't seem to be used in constructing the query sent to the LDAP server. This makes some useful custon configurations impossible to specify. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure an LDAP addressbook; check this works 2. Reconfigure the directory by going to the 'Advanced' configuration tab and change any of the values - e.g. specify (ObjectClass=teapot) as a search filter Actual Results: Subsequent searches are unaffected by any and all such changes Expected Results: In the case of (ObjectClass=teapot) you'd probably expect no results (unless your LDAP directory really contains teapot objects :-). Setting 'Don't return more than' to 1 doesn't prevent multiple entries being returned. Etc. The LDAP server logs confirm that the seartch filter isn't being used.

Currently Thunderbird tends to not pick up changes without a restart.
Ah! Ok, restarting Thunderbird does indeed cause Thunderbird to take note of the values in 'Search filter' (yippi!). Thanks for the hint. It's still a bug, of course, just not the one I reported.
This has been fixed for the next major versions of Thunderbird (3.x) by bug 124553, therefore marking as duplicate.
