I use the search bar a lot in Thunderbird and I cannot see the number of matches.
The place to type in the search could be shorter and the number of matches could be on the right of the up ^ and down arrows.
This would help a lot.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
This is what I see with Thunderbird 102.6.1. Note the number of matches on the right.
I can see approx 3mm of what I type
What even does that mean @ keithrboz
I meant that the only search bar I had was a miniature box next to the 6 icons at the top of the middle column of tBird, I think called the summary. I spent an hour or more trying to send you a screen shot, both using the camera icon above this 'Comment' area, and responding to you email (which bounced)
I now have an excellent LONG useable bar above the menu bar.
Thanks for responding.
