Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. search for particular message in big folder 2. get back to the folder by clicking on the cross mark Actual Results: no message is displayed when back in the folder Expected Results: the message which was selected in the search window should be displayed
This works for me if I select the message before clearing the quicksearch field. You seem to be thinking that quicksearch will find a single message, but it usually finds more than one. If you don't select a message and there are multiple results from a search, what would you expect to happen? I note that if you select multiple messages in the search results and then clear the QS field, only one message remains selected.
Summary: after exiting successfull mailbox search in main window the found message should be shown → after exiting successful quicksearch in main window the found message should be shown
