Especially it appears in the long filter list (more than one window).

How many filters do you have?
There are known long-standing bugs about using the list with many filters, but there are no known regression in the timeframe you mention. Are you sure the problem started only with TB13?

This is a list of changes that went into TB13 in the Filters component:;columnlist=product%2Ccomponent%2Cbug_severity%2Cversion%2Cop_sys%2Cbug_status%2Cresolution%2Cshort_desc;resolution=FIXED;query_based_on=My%20Assigned%20bugs%20%28Open%29;query_format=advanced;component=Filters;target_milestone=Thunderbird%2013.0

I do not see anything that should influence the speed of the filter list.

I have 140 filters.
And really - in TB12.0.1 - no problem. In any never version - as example - move filter on the position 1 to the position 50 is much slower.

How do you move the filters? Clicking the Move Down button or its shortcut key?

Also how slow do we talk here? Does it take 1 second to move a filter by one position? Or how much for the 50 positions in total?
Similar slowness was reported to bug 444793 comment #23.
According to the comment, it was observed on 2011-03-04 so it was phenomenon in Tb before 12, and time to move top to bottom depended on panel height(number of filter rules shown at onec).

Do you see such dependency on panel height in slowness you observed?
Summary: Slow filter move after version 12.0.1 → Slow filter move(Move Up/Move Down) at filter rule list after version 12.0.1

The mentioned bug 780473 was fixed on TB 17 too (approval-aurora+) so it is possible to just test the stable release.
