User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3

Search always returns zero results even if I see messages that match in the inbox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a word in the search box in the toolbar
2. Press enter or click the "Messages mentioning word"

Actual Results:  
A search result tab with zero results appears.

Expected Results:  
Some messages containing the word are found.

The searched folder is IMAP if that matters.

Probaly. There's some unreadable barely visible text in the search box until I click it to enter text.

When I click the looking glass "Search everywhere" option has a dot in front of it.

Probably locally. I looked in the account settings and there is "Keep messages for this account on this computer" which is checked.
is global indexing turned on on your machine ? (see preferences adavnced general)
