These are functionality I would like to have and have not found in any version to date or extension.

Date Issue
Aug 11 After a search the folders included in the search results are listed on the left. But it’s not possible to find where a particular folder is in a hierarchy.
Feb 10 Write email in a new tab, currently a new window opens.
Nov 09 Clone a message filter.
Oct 09 Save an email to html/pdf without the header information.
Oct 09 The ability to easily sync tab session between 2 computers. Can be done via the Session Manager extension, but not seamless.
Sep 09 Search Messages to find any tagged messages not having to specify a particular tag.
Aug 09 Be able to preview messages in the search window, there was an old extension which did this, PreviewInSearch.
Jun 09 The Skype extension for Firefox is great, any number on the web is one call away via Skype. I would like a similar “Skype extension for Thunderbird”, so when I open my address book, right clicking a contact will allow me to select form a list of their numbers and call.
Dec 08 When you reply to an email, have the signature of the sender automatically not included in the quotes.
Mar 08 Given a selected folder draw a timeline graph of the email quantity frequency.
Sep 07 Given a saved search folder which lists tagged messages. I would like to be able to right click a message and choose open the folder the message is in – in the current instance of TB rather the current open in folder button which opens a new copy of TB with the chosen folder active.
May 07 When one adds a new folder I would like to have a way of adding these new folders automatically so any saved searches includes them.
Feb 07 Recently I sent some one off emails to a large number of people, since it was one off I did not create a list…all the addresses were bcc. Later I wanted to check if I had sent it to certain people…I had to open up the email and search the bccs list by hand…tedious and non exact. It would be cool if there was a way to search to to/cc/bcc lists in a particular email or bunch of emails.
I know one can do a search for certain emails on/after a certain day with a given subject and search in to/cc but you can not search the bcc and this method is not super user friendly. It would be cool to be able to select the emails in question and right click and have a search destinations option…
Feb 07 I often end up going into my sent box and labelling emails sent that I need to follow up on. It would be great to be able to pick a label for an email while composing a message before closing/sending the email.
Jun 06 I have a saved search folder which shows all the messages where label isn’t none. When I remove the labels of messages in there the search folder does not refresh. I have to go to another folder and then back to the search folder. This is a known bug.
Jan 06 With OE I was able to save the attached message to a OE folder. It would be nice for Thunderbird.
May 05 It would be great when you are creating a message search you could do search for a whole word only.
May 05 Some of my email message dates were changed in the import process from oe and occasionally I get emails with bad dates. For example one is : 06/02/2101 12:28. This is very annoying when you display in arrival order which I generally do. It would be nice to be able to change the date attributes of an email message.
Apr 05 Change case of folder name: create a subfolder named myfolder, then try and rename it to MyFolder. It says a folder with that name already exists.

Forever Oct 12 Not being able to search or sort message filters has been a nightmare for a long time when you have a lot of filters.

The Filter-of-filters extension saves the day, brilliant. Supposedly this functionality is default in v18.
