When Thunderbird concludes a search and displays the Search Messages screen, it has two open panes: the top one shows the search criteria and the bottom one shows all of the emails that meet the search criteria.

It would be a great boon if Thunderbird added a third pane that would preview each email as it was selected.

I had created an extension that does what you describe but never released it..

I am having issues with my hosting server at the moment, so cant give you a link that will work..

If you primsg me your email address, I will send you the xpi to try...

Here is the thread that prompted me to write the extension -- http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=405974

If you do not know who I am and do not trust that I will do the right thing, just do a search for my handle and you will soon see that I have created several extensions for the TB community..

Cheers

I removed your e-mail address because we do not give email support. To do so would deprive other users of the information offered in a response to your topic. More importantly, spammers harvest email addresses from public forums like this.

So many times I would like to be able to preview my messages found in the search. I have not been able to find this extension now. Does anyone know if it or an alternative still exists and works with the current firefox?

Ausdilecce disappeared a while ago and his extensions were abandoned. He has not given permission for others to work on them, so most of them are dead. A few have been able to be bumped for newer versions of Thunderbird, but there's no guarantee that they would work.

If you find a copy, bumping is relatively easy. Good instructions here: http://forum.addonsmirror.net/index.php ... 73&hl=bump

BTW, Ausdilecce's extensions that have been bumped reside there as well.

Thanks. But that adds a button to the main toolbar and doesn't affect the search window.

ps. can the spam by Morfeusz1971 be deleted below?

looking for "PreviewInSearch.xpi" turns up no copies online.

someone must be running a bumped version of this extension.

Please post link.

thank you

I'm looking for such a thing as well. I did find the old file if someone is willing to update it.
