Closed Bug 243386 Opened 19 years ago Closed 19 years ago
Find as you type text not shown in status bar
When using find as you type I dont see anymore what I am typing in the status bar. rv:1.8a, Gecko/20040511 Firefox/0.8.0+ Not 100% sure when this last worked, I think it did in the 9th build.
Summary: Find as you type not shown in status bar → Find as you type text not shown in status bar
Regression window is 2004-05-09 Nightly to 2004-05-10 Nightly. Could be another casualty of Bug 243091?
Confirmed. - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040512 Firefox/0.8.0+ - Microsoft Windows 2000 Pro 5.00.2195 SP4
This is due to chrome/en-US/locale/en-US/navigator/contents.rdf no longer existing (presumably from Bug 243091) and thus the package containing the find as you type strings never being registered.
Since a patch won't apply after Bug 243387 is fixed I won't bother attaching one. For reference the relevant line to add to the en-US.jar section of mozilla/browser/extensions/package-fixup/jar.mn is this (I think, WFMs anyway): * locale/en-US/navigator/contents.rdf (../../../xpfe/browser/resources/locale/en-US/contents.rdf)
typeaheadfind is a core component and as such its resources should be packaged into global, not navigator.

Comment on attachment 148975 [details] [diff] [review] make typeaheadfind not depend on seamonkey chrome Thanks Ben. Any chance you have skills in the sound arena? They typeaheafind notfound.wav sound doesn't do Firefox justice, imo.

Appears in the branch, too. Build Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040520 Firefox/0.8.0+
Thanks Aaron. No I don't have any special skills with audio but I do have some ideas for type-ahead-find that might reduce errors. I'm going to file bugs on them for discussion when I get time.
Fixed branch and trunk.
