When I type "red" into the location bar, I get the following results: 1. newest submissions : reddit.com (http://www.reddit.com/new/) 2. reddit.com (http://reddit.com/) 3. reddit.com: submit (http://reddit.com/submit) 4. reddit.com: what's new online! (http://www.reddit.com/) etc. Now, no matter how much I select #4, and don't select any of the other ones (and hardly ever visit the other ones compared to #4), #4 stays in that position and doesn't move up the list. Isn't the location bar supposed to be smart and adapt to my behaviour over time? Reproducible: Always
Ryan, your assessment of how it's supposed to work is correct; what are the "Visit Count" values for each respective URL? You can context-click the sort widgets to add "Visit Count"
Thanks for looking into this Stephen. I got tired of the behaviour and implemented my own workaround by deleting the items above #4 from the results. So I don't think I'll be able to tell you the visit count for items 1-3, although I can assure you they were in the 10-20 range, if not lower, while #4 was well above 100. So I can get the visit count if this bug reoccurs (I have already experienced one reoccurence, although it is not happening currently), can you explain a little more how I'm supposed to find visit count for each url? What sort widgets do I context click, and where do I find them? Thanks.
OK, I've got one possible reoccurrence, although it's not nearly as blatant as the original, so it might not be a great example: When I type "glo" into the location bar, I get: 1. globeandmail.com (http://globeandmail.com/) 143 visits 2. globeandmail.com: Canada's National Newspaper (http://theglobeandmail.com) 169 visits The first redirects to the second. I'll be watching to see what happens as I continue to select the second result. When should I expect it to be #1?
Another, better reoccurrence: When I type "red": 1. politics (http://www.reddit.com/r/politics), 5 visits, last 02/11/08 2. overview for rfugger (http://www.reddit.com/user/rfugger/), 23 visits, last 22/10/08 3. reddit.com: what's new online (http://www.reddit.com/), 355 visits, last 3:29 pm today (14/11/08) Strangely, when I add another "d" to get "redd" in the location bar, the results seem to order fine, and earlier this afternoon I was getting fine results when type "red"...
Go to Bookmarks | Organize Bookmarks, and context-click on either Name, Tags, or Location, and add "Visit Count", though judging from comment 3 and comment 4, looks like you found it :-) (Sorry for the late reply.) Some of this might be tricky if the sites use an <iframe>; not sure why, in comment 4, #2 comes up before #3, though.
