The filtering in the Thunderbird should be in some way improved. I do not know how exactly but the full message body search should probably not be sticky.
More context: If you want to quick search the emails you can click a hourglass and a search field will show up in the right corner. Under it there a "Filter messages by" tabs that one can select. The full body search usually takes a lot of time so it should rather be a check box that you do once per search and have to explicitly enable. Also the full body search should start with most recent emails in the folder and go back.
