2) Quicksearch

look for the quick search modifiers:


in your case:
s <query>

PS: i have set for the search the `default mailbox` to `Current 
Mailbox`. in this case the scope of your search is only at the selected 
mailbox (mailbox folder) on the left tree view. so if you are in inbox 
then the search only in inbox. if you are at `all messages` then the 
search is in `all messages`. and when you have a `smart mailbox` then 
the search scope is the result of the conditions of the current smart 
mailbox. you can set the default mailbox when you click in the search 
and then the small dropdown arrow near the magnifier

3) the changing order is also annoying me a little :(
