Thunderbird is the best mail client in my opinion. I have been using it for over 15 years now, but there is one thing that could really be improved.
The "Search".
I'm having a lot of trouble finding emails outside of the current mailbox I'm in.
I don't like the filters page and show the emails as a list. It's too cumbersome and even then I often don't find the emails.
I occasionally use MailStore to find emails.

Why not a global search field where you can enter your search term and you will see all emails with the search term highlighted?
Something like Google.

It is a well recognized need. Unclear whether it will happen in version 114. If not that version I would hope in the following version.

I hope so too.
I wonder why it is taking so long.
