Are you using a browser to do this, or via tools -> add-ons? The latter doesn't always find everything. It's been that way for years.For example searching for green or marble or nature always fails (despite the exact same search working on the web site using a browser) while searching for fox returns 4 search results. If you searched for fox using a browser it returns 8,537 search results :)

I suggest you go to https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/themes/ , select a theme, right click on the add to Thunderbird button and select "save link as", and then in tools -> add-ons left click on the cog like icon in the upper right corner and select "install add-on from file". See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Importing_folders for an example of installing an extension - installing a theme is very similar.
