Attached is a small patch that sets the sensitivity of 'Edit/Quick search' based on whether Claws is in folder view or not.
(At least it seems to work -- M_EXEC isn't very descriptive to me, but other menu items -- e.g. Thread View -- that would be treated similarly seemed to use it.)
The reason for this patch is that when Claws in folder view (not message view -- I think I'm using those terms right), quick search doesn't do anything visible. The lack of feedback is confusing.
