Thunderbird 3: awful search

The new search feature in Thunderbird 3 is horrible! It is hard to get an overview on this new layout, which can only contain a very limited amount of results. The idea of caching messages in a local database for faster search is good, but quite late... I would have prefered the classic search result view (which is what you expect from a mail program), but with the new cached backend.

Update: just noticed that it is possible to click the little magnifying glass in the input field and choose "Subject, From, or Recipient filter" to get the old style search back!

Update again: looks like the the horrible search has been dropped in version 3.1 :-)
