User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 (20040207) When searching for addresses in the address book with the "advanced" feature the list of found addresses does not move accordingly to the movement of the scroll bar on the right. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open address book 2. click the button "advanced" to open the advanced address search dialog 3. enter a search string, that will find you some addresses and confirm the search 4. try to scroll through the found addresses using the scroll bar Actual Results: nothing :) Expected Results: scrolled the list
I can duplicate this bug on my x86 Athlon Linux system with Thunderbird 0.6 I can scroll the window with the mouse-wheel. Thought that might be a hint.
Identical results w/ Thunderbird 0.6 on Windows 2000: up/down arrows work, mouse wheel works, page up/down keys work, clicking scroll bar to page up/ down does not move through the selected set.
We've noticed this problem where I work, too. We sometimes do large searches in our ldap for all employees in a particular branch or department & this bug could get really annoying for some people. If the list is really long, it would take forever to get to the bottom of the list using the up & down arrows.
Bug still in Thunderbird 0.7 & latest nightly We're using W2K here at College & I'm on an Athlon x86 box. Colleague using Moz 1.7b suite on a similar box & OS doesn't have the problem.
Bug still present in version 0.7.3 (20040803).
Confirming to NEW. The scrollbar in the Advanced Address Book Search window does not work for the results list in today's latest nightly: version 0.7+ (20040823) I can imagine this being pretty annoying if you have a huge list of matching results... Nominating for aviary1.0.
it appears that the tree frame isn't even getting told to scroll to the next item when you click the scroll buttons. The event isn't getting through.
targeting for .9
this problem appears to be in both trunk and branch builds for thunderbird. seamonkey does not seem to be effected. Very strange.
Created attachment 163071 [details] [diff] [review] the fix hours of wasted time debugging scrolling events in xul just to discover this file was trying to load an overlay that had been collapsed directly into it. So things were getting defined twice and apparently that confused the scroll bar widget. Oh well.
fixed on the branch and the trunk
thanks woodie. I just checked in the change to bring in the overlay file. I haven't been able to reproduce the problem with the search dialog not working after the first search on the 0.8+ builds yet though so I didn't make that change.
The 'after the first search' problem may be when I search against an LDAP directory. There is no Advanced button in Thunderbird 0.9. Is advanced search coming back?
edit / search addressses
The Advanced search is hidden in 0.9... <!-- Hide the advanced button like we do for the main 3-pane window... When I enabled it, I found that it works great! ------------- FYI - I do get 'quick-search-menupopup' has no properties on the main AB
