A strong +1 from my side. I have lots of users who move quite many e-mails
to different folders. Sometimes this process takes a while and it would be
nice if at the top the status is shown. Example:
Moved 15/45 messages
The counter increases every second to see that Roundcube is working.
I've already had the bad experience that a user was moving A LOT of mails
to a different folder and expected to happen this immediately. During the
move, Roundcube is non-responsive (to prevent other user actions) but the
user just closed his browser because he thought the browser froze. This
caused a weird loop in the mail server creating thousands of messages in
the tmp folder of the users mail dir.
So an actual status of the move process would be very good to see!

Most users know the double click from their mail application like Outlook
and deactivating it would cause more trouble than good. But maybe an option
to deactivate it (per user) could be set.

On one hand the goto page isn't a bad idea, but this wouldn't be necessary
(I guess) if the search allowed to narrow down the results by setting
date/time ranges.
+1 for an advanced search :-)
