Currently the title of the window is simply "Find" - this is far too general. 
It needs to be more descriptive, perhaps "Find Bookmarks."   Personally, 
however, I think "Search Bookmarks" would be a much better title since that's 
what the menu item to invoke it says.

I didn't realize this window also handles history searching.  In that case, 
perhaps Search Bookmarks/History would be more appropriate, to be compatible 
with the menu item that invokes it.

bulk changing these to 'Search' component. I believe ben@netscape.com used to own this dialog but I don't

know if that is still the case.

fixed; vera, do you think Search Bookmarks/History is the best title for the 
window, considering its function?

I'm not sure what I think. It's a little awkward having the same dialog perform 
search for both bookmarks and history. (But it's also convenient.)

The best solution I can come up with is labeling the menu item "Find in 
Bookmarks" in the Manage Bookmarks window, and "Find in History" (as it already 
is)in the History window.

The current menu items *are* Find in Bookmarks... and Find in History... (I 
checked in to change to "Find in Bookmarks..." a couple days ago).  I was told 
in bug 44733 that this wasn't correct, however (and I pretty much agree with 
that)

Thanks -- I've put a query to Claudius in that bug. We'll get it figured out 
soon.
