Search options from Firefox 54 on a Mac

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0
Build ID: 20170811072257

Steps to reproduce:

- Navigate to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/
- Open the DevTools
- Go to the debugger tab
- Press Ctrl + F (nothing happens)
- Press Ctrl + P
- Type `!var`
- Clear the search box
- Type `var`


Actual results:

- Ctrl + F does not open the search box so we can search in sources
- Searching for `!var` gives the following message: "No files matching !var found"
- Searching for `var` gives the following message: "No files matching var found"


Expected results:

Whether with Ctrl + F or Ctrl + P, in previous versions, we were able to search in all files when we prefix our search text with an Exclamation mark (`!`).

I have attached a screenshot of the search options from Firefox 54 on a Mac (My issue is in Firefox 56beta on Ubuntu, not sure if it exists in Firefox 55).

I attached a screenshot of the expected results when searching for `var` in all files on Firefox 54.

Searching for `var` in all files in Firefox 56.0b2

I attached a screenshot of the search in Firefox 56 (searching for "var" instead of "!var" ends up with the same result)

It appears to be a problem with the new Debugger UI.

I manually changed `devtools.debugger.new-debugger-frontend` in about:config to `false`. Search in all files is still working when I use the old UI.

I updated the title as this is probably not related to the Firefox version, but to the new debugger frontend.

Sorry for the trivial question, but I just noticed there's a "Has Regression Range" field. Should I set that to "yes" or am I not supposed to be the one to modify that or is this issue not considered regression?
Summary: [Regression] Can no longer search in all sources in the debugger DevTools → The new Debugger UI does not allow searching in all files (or any of the advanced search features available in the previous UI)

I'm happy to say that we shipped a new project search in 56 and it will be slicker in 57
