I just searched for "tabbrowser.xml " since I pasted an extra space by mistake, and got no results. Without the space I of course got the two files. Why doesn't the default search by filenames (not regexp search, that's a different story) strip excess spaces from the end of the search term?
filename search _is_ a regex search fwiw
> filename search _is_ a regex search fwiw Hmm, didn't notice that. In that case, let's open another bug: Bug 349315.
reporter: in the future, please properly use the bugzilla bug tracking system when filing bugs. at the very least, that includes: A. filling the url field. this isn't hard as most web browsers have a copy feature and oddly enough, the have paste too. B. include steps to reproduce, that means things like 1. load lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey 2. click search 3. read and the inconspicuous text that reads: Search for files (by name) using regular expressions. (Need some Hints on performing searches?) - or go home 4. paste "tabbrowser.xml " into the field 5. click search C. include expected results "I expect this feature to do something entirely unrelated to what it clearly says it will do: namely search for the file name as a trimmed substring search" D. include actual results: Taken to a page whose URL is: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/find?string=tabbrowser.xml+ E. Be reasonable. I'm willing to consider fixing the bug that you should have filed, but this bug as it was filed is awful. Note that there are multiple entry points to find and I'm willing to bet that you *didn't* choose the one I did, which is *precisely* why steps to reproduce are important. Note that there are various flavors of expected results.
here are some examples of why being able to search for spaces is important: http://mxr-test.landfill.bugzilla.org/mozilla/find?string=Release+ /camino/docs/Release Notes 0-5.rtf http://mxr-test.landfill.bugzilla.org/mozilla/find?string=%20Plugin /modules/plugin/tools/sdk/samples/basic/mac/Basic Plugin.mcp
