Announcing Search in Thunderbird

Welcome to our first release of the new OpenSearch add-on.

Search from the global search field.

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.
