  Upgrade to Thunderbird 3 breaks Mail Search Function

Status in thunderbird package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: thunderbird


  Upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 enforced the upgrade to Thunderbird 3, which
  comes with a questionable tabbing design, breaking important features
  of older Thunderbird versions.

  Thunderbird then displayed the matching messages in the message list.
  You could then select them all and, e.g., move them into a folder.
  This allowed to rapidly sort and cleanup mailboxes and was very

  Now with Thunderbird 3, when you enter a search string, it opens a
  separate Tab, which requires to change the view to get the results.
  Even worse, you cannot select these messages in any way, they are
  blown up from one line to 5-6, require scrolling and paging, and there
  is no way to process them together.

  The Upgrade to Thunderbird 3 breaks really important features of the
  older version.
