Everything moved from the old Thunderbird account to the new one on Windows 10 but when I search for messages I see a summary of the body but when I click on the message title to see the full message the body window is blank. Is the body gone?

Since this has happened with the global search, I recommend you rebuild the database and see if it changes the outcome:
