Old Search in Thunderbird 3

Wednesday 22 September 2010 - Filed under Default

Thunderbird 3 brings one rather annoying change: the default search delivers confusing search results formatted into separate tabs sorted by relevance rather than date. To use the old style search, just click the icon on the left of the search box and choose anything other than the top option(“Search all messages”). Whew. That was a close one.

As a side note, I’m not sure if it’s my new machine or new operating system (GNU/Linux vs. XP) but this “classic style” search seems a lot faster to me in Thunderbird 3.
