Build ID: 2000072608 WinNT 4 Steps to Reproduce: (1) Show My Sidebar (if not already shown) (2) Switch to the Search tab (if not already the active tab) (3) Type something in the textfield (e.g. 'test') (4) Hide My Sidebar (completely, via View | My Sidebar) (5) Show My Sidebar (via View | My Sidebar, again) Result: The Search button is disabled, but it should be enabled since there's still text in the textfield. This likely happens because the button only enabled upon keypress in the textfield, and the state of the button doesn't persist between hide/show sidebar (why is that, if the text of the textfield persists?), so it doesn't know to enable upon reopening the sidebar. A simple check upon loading the Search tab to see if there's text in the textfield (and then enabling the button accordingly) would fix this, but I'm not sure if the load function for the active tab is called again when the sidebar is hidden and then shown.
