When I search my posts, is it too much work to be able to classify whether I want to specify & limit Firefox, Thunderbird, whether closed (unsubscribed) or not? etc. in my search? I know you guys/gals are volunteer but I'm 86 & type/select slow (in my high school typing was manual typewriters only besides never took typing & now I''m missing a finger becasue of a dumb accident (my error!)
Win 10 Pro on my originally Dell Optiplex System 7 desktop, but now 32-bit latest Windows 10. Usually latest or latest-1 Thunderbird on all machines. Would like soon to buy a new laptop if my finances permit.

How are you doing the search? If you use the "Boards (Advanced)" field in the right hand column, you can specify which forum to search and also enter your user ID in the "Search by author" field to limit the search to your own posts.

Thank you Sir, I see it but don't quite know how to use it?
