Description

13 years ago
This problem occurs in Thunderbird; I suspect it also occurs in the Mozilla Suite.

To reproduce:

- Bring up Search Messages window (Ctrl-Shift-F)
- Perform a search which returns no matches. Wait until it completes.
- Note text "No matches found" in status bar.
- Change criteria to some which produce a match.
- Click "Search" again.
- Note status bar still says "No matches found" even as matches are appearing in
the list. Status bar is only updated when search completes.

What should happen: starting a new search should empty the status bar.

As a more general point, this window does not give enough feedback that a search
is in progress. The only way to tell is if the "Search" button now says "Stop".
 That's not really enough. :-|

WFM - "searching" appears in the status bar
- SM trunk  Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060714 SeaMonkey/1.5a
- TB trunk  version 3 alpha 1 (20060906) - after initial delay of the search starting (seems to start *much* slower than seamonkey)
