Description of problem:
I have set filters the same as in thunderbird 3 and use imap server. If I run filters in thunderbird 5, it takes approx. 10 minutes to move 300 messages into subfolders.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set filters to move messages to subfolders according to From
2. get some messages in inbox

filtering one message takes approx. 2s

Expected results:
filtering 300 messages takes approx. 2s

How many filters you have, how many messages? What kind of filters you have (on headers only, on body of messages, etc.)?

Thank you

Mostly filters on headers only (against From field), total 45 filters. Total count of messages approx. 30,000 :)

If the speed slowed down continually, it could be naturally. But there is a very significant difference now (approx. 50 times or more slower then a month ago), so I assume there is an issue.

We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=684550) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

We will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

We would strongly encourage you to subscribe to the upstream bug as well (by logging in and adding yourself to the Cc list), so that you can provide whatever information required for the successful resolving of this issue.

Thank you for helping to make free software better.

Is the From being checked against address books?
