Running openSUSE 11.3 on two different machines. On one machine when
using Thunderbird I have a little magnifying glass icon on the left hand
side of the search box where I can set the filter for the search (from,
subject, whole messgae etc.). This is Thunderbird 3.0.10.

On the other machine I am missing this feature and search always
searches the complete message. This is Thunderbird 3.1.6.

I plead ignorance as to adding an extension to get this feature. Is
there a setting I am missing to get this filter capability into the
search box?

Help is appreciated.

Thanks, Robert, and see my reply to Ken. I have never paid attention to that box - didn't even know that it was a search tool.

And I just saw that Wolfgang answered your question (but I still cannot see the magnifying glass - I'm using 3.1.6).
