I see the bug on Linux too. If you enter a search directly into the panel the 
results come up. Also, if you bookmark a search and then click on it in your 
bookmarks, the results also come up. I have never looked at search stuff before, 
so there may be a better owner for this bug.

I don't understand. This is a smoketest - it gets tested every single day. Yet it doesn't
work with my 200131304 builds on MAc and Win98 or a 2001030913 build on linux.

typing 'zach lipton' into the URl bar and pressing search does a search with your preferred
search provider (displayed in browser content area), then activates the sidebar seach panel,
populates the text input field in that panel - but displays NO results. I'm shocked and amazed.
Reopening.

I think it has to do with a space in the name. I also think that this is in 
some other bug, not sure where though. Try it with foo and see what 
happens. Or, *GASP* maybe mozilla doesn't like me...
in general this works....sometimes on mac, if the search subject is obscure,  
nothing loads in the sidebar even though results were found by the search 
engine. But if the search is broad it always loads, sometimes a little slow, but 
it loads into the sidebar.

yeah it's the space, that makes all the difference. The browser does different things (goes
through a different code path) for 'foobar' vs. 'foo bar' cuz it knows 'foo bar' isn't a web
address. The smoke test doesn't address that I guess. So it loks like we're failing in the
case where we have and obvious search string (two words).
