Does Gmail have the ability to import and use filters created in Thunderbird? As far as I am aware, the import function on the Gmail settings page is only for importing filters from other Gmail accounts, not from email clients.

If you want to try importing filters from Thunderbird, the file that stores your filter settings is called "msgFilterRules.dat". Each account will have its own "msgFilterRules.dat" file, stored in the "Local Directory" for the account in your profile.

If it supports text, try importing the data from the file I noted above. I can't say whether it will work but the file is a text file.
