Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0
Build ID: 20141201162954

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open this page: http://nightly.mozilla.org/
2. Press Ctrl-Shift-S
    => The debugger panel of the DevTools should be open
3. In the search box of the debugger, type "!ea" and press enter
    => All occurrences are displayed in the list
4. Press Enter
    => Nothing happens
5. Press UP / Down
    => Nothing happens


Actual results:

Nothing happens in step 4 and 5.


Expected results:

I think it would be be nice that:
- pressing Enter goes to the next occurrence after the list is displayed
- pressing the Up / Down arrow keys displays respectively the next / previous occurrences

Actually, F3 should bring you to the next search result, like it does in any other programm. But I don't know if that conflicts with Firefox' own search.

Updated

Last year
Product: Firefox → DevTools

closing as this relates to the old debugger.

(In reply to Jason Laster [:jlast] from comment #2)

closing as this relates to the old debugger.

Is it still an issue in the new debugger?

I don't think so. We have a different project search UI with keyboard navigation.
