Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

I have an Inbox and a Sent box (among others) that I search frequently.
When I search the Inbox, I usually search Subject/From, but when I
search the Sent, it is usually To.  The problem is that Thunderbird
doesn't remember that for each mailbox.  When I change from Inbox to
Sent, I have to change the search criteria again, and likewise when I
change back.  It would be nice if that could be remembered.

If you don't like this, perhaps just making the default search criteria
for Sent to be To/Subject might work nicely too.

Best regards,
