Created attachment 301752 [details] bookmark details persist though a search is going on (see attached image) If I select a bookmark, its details are visible in the details pane (bottom half of the screen) -- so far so good. If I then do a search, though, the search results begin filling in the upper half of the screen, leaving the details of the previously selected bookmark in the bottom half of the screen. This is problematic in that the details (a) are about a bookmark that has nothing to do with the search results and (b) occupy space that could be better used for the potentially long list of result-set bookmarks.
You want the bottom panel temporarily go away during a search?
same thing happens when looking at History. There is a bug filed on that. Bookmark properties should not be present unless a Bookmark is selected.
Ria: not exactly -- once a search is initiated (ie. when the user hits enter after typing in the search terms), the previously selected bookmark should no longer be selected. It has no relevance to the current task. Tracy: which bug is that?

It has no relevance to the current task. Indeed. As soon as the search is run, the panel should revert to how it looks when a folder is selected ("n items; select an item to see it's properties") - to see what I mean, just select any folder like the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder. > Tracy: which bug is that?

We can just clear the selection and be ok here, right?

I think we can call the onContentTreeSelect method to display the bottom panel when searching. And I upload this proposal patch. Could anybody can help review it? Thanks!
Created attachment 311563 [details] [diff] [review] A proposal patch Just call onContentTreeSelect in showSearchUI and doSearch method.

Bo, imo the correct way of dealing with this would be reset the selection on the content tree on search
(In reply to comment #9) > Bo, imo the correct way of dealing with this would be reset the selection on > the content tree on search > Do you mean in doSearch and search, call clearSelection() of the content tree to make the onselect handler to display the panel? Just like the new patch? Thanks for your advice!
Created attachment 311732 [details] [diff] [review] new patch Clear selection to make onselect handler to deal with the panel displaying.
change comments //Display the panel to something like // Clear right pane selection to update details panel then ask review to Mano

Comment on attachment 311953 [details] [diff] [review] Change the comment I would rather just call onContentTreeSelect directly, the old view is already gone at this point, thus clearing the selection doesn't make sense.

Comment on attachment 311563 [details] [diff] [review] A proposal patch Yes the first patch, this is my fault, sorry Bo :( + + //Update the bottom panel + PlacesOrganizer.onContentTreeSelect(); fix trailing space in the first empty line ad space after // in comments and use details pane instead of bottom panel.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h". In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows: Tools | Message Filters Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New" Conditions: Body contains places-to-b-and-h Change the action to "Delete Message". Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top. Click OK. Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter. Gerv
