This no longer works. In order to search in the View Source page, one must not press Ctrl+F and open the dialog box. This is inconsistent with the browser window, where Find as you Type still works. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. View the source code of this page 2. Press slash (/) followed by some word on the page Actual Results: Nothing happened Expected Results: Done a "Find as you type" Similar to Bug #250279 (View Source doesn't use Find Toolbar) but this relates to behaviour specifically of Find as you Type, rather than the appearance of the dialog.
sp3k (linux) and I (winXP) confirmed on IRC that typeahead find and regular find in page are currently broken.
Duping to 251543. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 251543 ***
Not duplicate; this bug refers to "View Source" page.
Now, In FindToolbar, it has FAYT option. If it has FindToolbar by "View Page Source", I will think that FAYT can be used similarly. duplicate 250279 ?
> duplicate 250279 ? If 250297 is resolved by adding the find toolbar to View Source, then this bug will be no longer. If however it's resolved some other way, such as deciding that View Source doesn't need a find toolbar, then this bug may remain. In my opinion it's not strictly a duplicate, depending on what happens with 250297. In the meantime FAYT on View Source is not doing anything at all - find toolbar or not.
Too many if:s for keeping this bug open. Duping, please reopen this bug if FAYT still doesnt work after bug 250279 has been fixed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 250279 ***
I do not believe that this is a duplicate of bug #250279. This bug refers to "Find As You Type" - that is, the action of pressing slash and then typing a word in order to find it - NOT the Find Toolbar and not the appearance of the window. Whether it uses the Find Toolbar or not is not related to this bug. This bug is similar to bug #250279 only so far as if the Find Toolbar is added to the View Source page, as bug #250279 calls for, then this bug would no longer be relevant. This has not happened and there is no guarantee it would happen, and therefore this bug remains relevant. This kind of relationship between two bugs is common and is not grounds for resolving one as a duplicate of the other. This would be a duplicate of another bug only if it described the same behaviour as another. The bug reporting guidelines state that one should not mention multiple problems in one bug report - one should keep each problem separate.
Thomas, I appreciate your adhering so closely to the bug filing guidelines, and you are generally correct. However, in this case, because the find toolbar and FAYT are now inextricably intertwined, I'm going to dup these two bugs, because they'd be fixed by the same patch and we need our 1.0 blocker list to be an accurate representation of how many fixes are needed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 250279 ***
