(This bug imported from BugSplat, Netscape's internal bugsystem.  It
was known there as bug #386868
http://scopus.netscape.com/bugsplat/show_bug.cgi?id=386868
Imported into Bugzilla on 03/02/00 18:34)

In the Search results panel, if you run a search on any string, any category, the 
Search button will switch to read "Stop". I am not sure of the design idea, but I 
haven't been able to stop the search yet. The button will stay on "Stop" until 
you click on it again at which time it changes to read "Search" again. Feels like 
one click too many! If it does work in stopping a search it should change back to 
default state once the page has finished loading.
To reproduce:
1. Launch the seamonkey browser (build #2000022708)
2. Open the "Search Results" panel by selecting it
3. Enter a search string and click on the Search button
4. Notice the search button changes to read "Stop"
5. Click on the stop button
RESULT:
It changes back to read "Search"

yeah the 'search'  button forgets to change it's state back from 'stop' after a search is complete. reassigning QA and owner.

I'll fix the part of this related to observing the stop button in the main 
window, then scoot this over to rjc to fix the back end so that I get sent a 
stop signal when the search is done for multiple engine cases ;)
