I find that I frequently need to open a bug report
whose bug number is in a python-dev email I read
with Mozilla Thunderbird.

I now tried to automate things a bit more, and found
the excellent DictionarySearch plugin:


To install, follow these steps:
1. Download the plugin (for Thunderbird, make
    sure to download to disk)

2. In Thunderbird, open Tools/Extensions/Install,
    select the file downloaded

3. Open Tools/Extensions again, double-click DictionarySearch.

4. In "Dictionary 1", fill in
    Text: Python Bug $
    Access Key: y (as P will conflict with Print)
    URL: http://www.python.org/sf/$

To use the plugin, select a bug report number in a message,
select the context menu, and type y (or click the Python
Bug menu entry).


P.S. In case you wonder why this plugin is DictionarySearch:
it is meant to lookup words in an email in a dictionary, e.g.
