If I do a search with the "search all messages" feature, I cannot edit the search keywords I initially entered and am forced to start from scratch again. This is particularly problematic if I have created filters for folders or people to include/exclude and have zoomed in on a particular time period. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Search all messages"
2. Enter a search phrase
3. Set some filters, such as people or folders to include/exclude
4. Change the search phrase and hit enter
5. A new search tab opens, without the items set in (3). The previous tab is unchanged. 
Actual Results:  
A new search tab is opened without filters. The previously search tab is not changed.

Expected Results:  
The single open search tab reevaluates the changed keywords and adjusts the output, keeping the filters and date zooming as set.

Chris, search has changed significantly in version 3.1. In addition, despite your detail, I'm having difficulty understanding exactly what you mean. Perhaps the issue is gone in version 3.1?

If problem is still there, please describe it in more detail, based on using version 3.1
