This is a quicksearch item, not a normal bookmark. It's not made to be clicked, but to be used in the URIbar. Marking INVALID.
What??? It is in the "bookmark" menu. A user does not chck waht it is intended to be. Anyway it is broken and has to be fixed.
blitzreiter, as Sébastien explained, this bookmark is not a regular one. It is used in conjunction with a user input in the url bar. Though, I agree that the current behaviour is flawed. When such a bookmark is clicked on, a dialog should popup to get this input.
I am sorry, it happens in my Phoenix 0.5. version I downloaded. So does quick search not belong to the Phoenix distribution? Since it is in the bookmark menu. Since it is accesible as a bookmark Since no user cares about what a option is intended to be for Since there is a problem that can easiely be reproduced with my unaltered Phoenix 0.5 (bookmarks - quick searches - dictionary quicksearch) To my mind quick search shall be totally removed from this bookmark menu and be attached to the input button selector (like dmoz.org). Another option was to open webster with no input when input was blank like an ordinary bookmark. In this case http://www.webster.com/home.htm would be the correct URL.
Setting OS to All and updating summary, since this is about quicksearch bookmarks in general.
It could also be a good idea to talk to Webster to fix this problem on their site. That may be easier if they avoided the error message on their site by detecting a blank input.
taking QA contact, sorry about the bugspam
The solution to this would be to check if there is a %s in the link when loading the bookmark and if there is, then pop up a dialog box to get the input. Ideally typing a keyword without the term would pop up the same dialog. Example The bookmark entry is as follows: Bookmark Name: Google Quicksearch Bookmark Keyword: google Bookmark Description: Perform a search on Google Bookmark Location: http://www.google.com/search?&q=%s If the user were to click on the bookmark or type 'google<enter>' in the location bar, the following dialog would pop up: +--------------------------------------------------------+ | Perform a search on Google: | | |_______________________________________ [Search] | | | | Note: You can simply type 'google <term>' in the | | location bar to perform this search. | +--------------------------------------------------------+ Note that the introductory text is the Bookmark Description, if one isn't present, the bookmark name should be used. Also the keyword in the note text is filled in automagically.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
This would be great for making quick searches more public, plus the add of the search in the awesomebar made some time ago.
Definitely not blocking, too late for features so not setting wanted.
Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h". In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows: Tools | Message Filters Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New" Conditions: Body contains places-to-b-and-h Change the action to "Delete Message". Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top. Click OK. Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter. Gerv
We no longer have default quicksearch bookmarks, and don't plan to expand their use much.
