Welcome to our first release of the new OpenSearch add-on.
OpenSearch lets you search the web from within Thunderbird.
As well as showing up in global search results, you can access OpenSearch from the Message Menu, or the context menu: Select some text, then click Message -> Search The Web…, and Thunderbird will open a new tab containing the search results.
With your help, we’re hoping to get this add-on built directly into future versions of Thunderbird so please try it out and leave your feedback. See the OpenSearch project page for links concerning issues, feedback, and ideas.
