Mozilla 1.6 Mail&News View menu

The 'View' filter menu unfortunately works only on a per message basis 
which makes it impossible to filter for threads.
For example actually it is not possible to create a filter with this 
properties: "View all threads which contain a message with [this] 
properties".

This feature could be easily implemented in the following way: In the 
'Message View Setup' window underneath the filter list just place a 
checkbox '[Display] Whole Thread'. Then when this option is checked 
together with the filtered message all other messages in the same thread 
will be displayed.

This would be really helpful!

Assuming you mean the MailView dropdown at the top of the thread pane 
(which maps to the View|Messages menu): This is not so "easily 
implemented."  These two enhancements are similar to what you want:

And both are blocked by this:
