There is a option called 'Search Primary Details Only' under Administer >> Customize Data and Screens >> Search Preference when set to 'No' it works only when searched using search forms like Advance contact search or Find contact search but the quick search on top left corner doesn't respect this setting. Is it a core bug or intended to search on primary details or never supported?

There has been discussion going on to implement this in CiviCRM core code, developed a small extension to do that for time being until its been implemented in core.
