Comment 4 for bug 691380

Ok, this is getting worse...

I was just helping one of my users that I have upgraded to 3.1 (now on rc2) because she was hitting bug 570804 constantly - the new 3.1 totally fixes it, so good work there!

Anyway, she was complaining that her searches weren't producing correct results. I finally realized it was because she didn't have 'recipient' clicked/enabled - but it took me a few minutes to even notice those new options just below the search box.

<sigh>

All the Quickfilter search box needed was the little sticky thumbtack added to it. Everything else worked just fine, although I do kind of like the idea of being able to individually select which of the criteria is enabled.

This is going to be a *huge* UI irritant for some of us. Every time I go into my rc2 install now it's like fingernails down a chalkboard, and I don't see it getting any better with time.

I honestly don't know if I'll be able to stand it, but I'm not sure what my options are... <sigh>

Why? Why did you have to go and convert a nice, neat, simple little search box into a huge monstrosity of a toolbar? This was totally and absolutely unnecessary.

Please, restore it to the way it was, but just with the little sticky pin next to it, and by all means include the ability to individually select the criteria, and I have an idea on how to do that very unobtrusively:

Show the currently selected criteria 'greyed out' inside the searchbox, like 3.0 does now, but when the dropdown/select box widget is clicked, instead of dropping down the pre-defined list of criteria combinations, drop down the *new* list of individual options just like they are now, so the user can click/select/deselect whichever ones they want active - then when the user clicks anywhere else on the GUI, the drop down goes away.

Please?
