***Overview Description: It is not currently possible to do searches in the MySidebar Search tab. ***Steps to Reproduce: 1) Open your sidebar to the Search tab 2) type a search term and click 'Search' ***Actual Results: The browser looks busy for a sec and the button changes to 'Stop' Then it reverts to 'Search' and nothing has happened. No results in the Sidebar (this may be a result of another related bug) AND no results in the content window. ***Expected Results: Search results in the sidebar and the content window. ***Build Date & Platform Info: This bug was originally found by email@example.com on the 2001041604 WinNT build. I however don't seem to be able to reproduce it on a 2001041704 Win98 build but it does repro on MacOS and Linux builds of the same timestamp.
I forgot to keyword this. This bug is pretty serious.

Using US Windows 98, Recommended install, 042404 build, bug reproduces as described above. However, I just saw Sidebar Search work on TPringle's machine with the same build, but I do not know which type of install he used. Nominating nsbeta1+

After a recommended and full install of build 2001042420, I see that the default basic sidebar search is still broken.
matt, maybe try an opt build or <gulp> commercial build? I can still repro this on three different platforms with a mix of new/old profiles on the 20010426 builds. Lynnw and others have seen this as well. Although, there is one reprot of someone else w/a build that should've showed the bug but did not.
the build I showed you it working was commercial optimized. I've tried 2 machines....3 types of builds. We need to sit down together and look at this. What a pain in the ars this bug is.
Basic sidebar search works if the user switches to Advanced, performs a search and then switches back to Basic. Suggests that default search is not working. This test was performed in build 20010508 (commercial).
this is the same patch as is in bug 73238
fixed To test try searching multi times. with new profile. Do advanced also.
