Search in Thunderbird not displaying messages

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Running a search in Thunderbird (ctrl-k) provides a number of results but clicking on them does not bring up the message that matches the search hit or any other useful information
  • Expectation is to see the message content displayed in the right hand frame and the thread in the left pane.
