Description

19 years ago
When you search the bugzilla database for recorded bugs you sometimes make less
intelligent queries resulting in maybe 800 matches. This is something you dont
know until the results page is done loading which can be really annoying on a
slow connection. My suggestion is that the amount of matching bugs should be
printed at the top of the bug list so that you can stop, go back and make a more
specific query if you see that you got a couple of hundred matches

That shouldn't be too hard, since the complete bug list is known before
the first line of the table is printed, if I remember right.

Patch is attached, please review and check in. (Nominating for 2.12)
It works fine on my local Bugzilla installation.

With this patch, the number of bugs is only displayed at the top if there
are at least 10 bugs. Otherwise the list is so small that it should be enough
to see the number at the bottom.
