Find function in Filter Preferences - No indication when keyword is not found — at Version 9

Reported by: Crits Assignee: trev
Priority: P3 Milestone: Adblock-Plus-2.6.4-for-Firefox
Module: Adblock-Plus-for-Firefox Keywords:
Cc: smultron45@…, fhd, trev Blocked By:
Blocking: Platform: Firefox
Ready: yes Confidential: no

Review URL(s):



Windows 7 x64 SP1
Firefox 19.0

How to reproduce

  1. Open filter preferences
  2. Click the Search button
  3. Start typing a keyword that does not exist in your filter lists

Observed behaviour

No indication (color change or sound) is given when the searched keyword is not found.

Expected behaviour

The search function should mimic the one of Firefox, i.e. at least color the search box background in red, and possibly make a sound, when the keyword is not found.

That's a not-existing feature and thereby a change request rather than a bug.

Note that I made a mistake in the "component" field, it should be Adblock Plus for Firefox and not for Android.

Actually, it is a bug - the find bar can indicate failed searches and our code is supposed to tell the find bar to do it. Not sure why it doesn't happen.

Actually, our implementation is correct. It's simply that changed the API once again, onFindResult now expects an object with various properties instead of multiple parameters. At least that's what we have in Firefox 29 and above - @Crits, I guess you meant Firefox 29 rather than Firefox 19?
