1.15      axel.gru   48: <p>Thanks for installing quickFilters! <br/>
                     50: This extension makes it much easier to create new mail filters, by simply dragging emails into folders and let quickFilters do the "heavy lifting" 
                     51: of filling in the sometimes complicated settings in the filter settings. Filters are usually used to move emails to other folders, automatically, so it makes
                     52: sense to show Thunderbird "what to do" by dragging one typical email manually, rather than filling in all the complicated details.

                     76:   <li>Next, the Edit Filter dialog is displayed - as you can see it already tries to "guess" what  you want the filter to do when it should be applied,

1.2       axel.gru   97: I will probably add more templates in future, if I get good requests from the users. 
                     98: Simply head over to the <a href="bugs.html">bugs section</a> to suggest new templates.

                    102:        <p>Probably the most used pattern: this will retrieve the sender's email address and paste it into the from and to filter conditions fields.
                    103:        This way a whole conversation with the sender will be moved to the new folder.

                    106:        <p>Similar to 'Based on Sender': use this when you move an email from yourself 
                    107:        to somebody else. This will retrieve the recpient's email address and paste it into 
                    108:        the from and to filter conditions fields. This way the complete conversation with 
                    109:        the contact will be moved to the new folder.</p>

                    111:        <p>
                    112:        Similar to Based on Sender, but it doesn't fill the 'to' condition field.

                    116:        This will look for special "bracketed" expressions, e.g. [amo-editors] or {Mozilla} and create a filter condition based on these; a lot of
                    117:        mass email is set up using this pattern, so it is really easy to use.

                    121:        Uses the tags of the email and adds them as filter conditions.

                    147: <p>The biggest new feature here is the addition of a Search box, which allows filtering the number of results</p>
                    148: <p>Also you can now move the filter to the top of the bottom of the list. This is actually significant as the 
                    149: order you see on screen is the same as the order in which the filters are executed. This also means, if a filter
                    150: on the top moves a message from the inbox then the filters below will not get a chance to execute on this message;
                    151: as the filters are only executed on messages in the inbox, they will simply be ignored. Therefore it is very important 
                    152: that it remains easy to re-order the relative positions of the filters. This also works while the search box is active.</p>
