Search the official Thunderbird Support site for how to use filters.
Maybe you will find something there.
I asked that page (using the top "Search Mozilla Support" input) to
search for the word "filter" (without quotes). There were 140 results,
which I have read one by one in the result list pages. For many of them,
I read their longer description below their title. For some of them, I
have read the whole story and answers given to it. In the end, I did not
find an answer to what I am trying to do.
I am trying to do one of:
a. To create a filter from the menu "Tools > Message filters" to list
(or to copy, or move, or do any other possible action - this "detail"
not matter, since we can easily change one chosen action to another one,
if a new filter with only that action different becomes wanted) ...
Again, to create a filter from the menu "Tools > Message filters" to
list all messages, in a specific newsgroup, that are both: 1) starred
messages; 2) contain a specific word (to be chosen for the filter, but
as an example to use here, it can be the word: proteger) in their body.
b. Use TB's quick filter toolbar to do the same as the filter in 'a.'
- Please note: doing it with quick filter for all folders in all
accounts of the current TB profile is *not* a solution. That is because
I know my search only needs to be done in one specific newsgroup (which
seems to be equivalent to email folders, in these TB filter limiters),
so I do not want to spend time processing many other places, which may
give many unwanted results, for something that I know is in only very
general mailing list
