Steps to reproduce:

Opened developer tools, debugger tab, and tried to search within all files. The only way I know is using the Ctrl + Alt + F shortcut.

Actual results:

Nothing happened.

Expected results:

Since the update to FF 52, I couldn't search within all JS files, with the shortcut I've been used to and which hasn't been changed (
I don't know what to expect, since layout of developer tools have been changed.

Summary: Search in all sources using the script filter (Ctrl + Alt + F) shortcut not working → Search in all sources using the script filter (Ctrl + Alt + F) shortcut be gone
The docs have been updated, the new debugger doesn't have a "Search in all files" feature anymore.  We will be looking into doing this again later.
Priority: -- → P3
It now provides the same feature by using Ctrl + Shift + F. Will it be the ultimate shortcut?

Thank you.
Willing to update the documentation, is it the same shortcut on Linux?

Yes, I know, but I'm not sure of whether the Ctrl + Shift + F works on Linux as well (no Linux distros at my fingertips at the moment).

I can check Linux. I have a VirtualBox set up with Linux.

I know this is a pain, but can you try to use when you do a need me to respond? I can't seem to get rid of my personal email address.

Created this MDN/Sprints issue to track it: MDN/Sprints #1604

Added information about the keystroke (along with images) to the search page at: Searching in all files

Added the shortcut to the table at Debugger


Search in all files in the current project from the debugger by pressing Shift + Ctrl + F (Windows or Linux) or Shift + Cmd + F (macOS) (bug 1320325).
