Just use feature called Quick filter, it is activated by clicking icon near global search box, then lower search box appear which is for current folder only.

This is very fast and useful feature, only caveat that it sometimes switches off (eccidentelly press Escape), thus I created how to reactivate it with keyboard: Press 'q' and just search! Tho whole procedure is here How to configure Thunderbird Quick Filter toolbar shortcut
