Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120621 Firefox/15.0a2 (20120621042006)

1. Load in the browser.
2. Open the Debugger (Tools->Web developer->Debugger, or press Ctrl+Shift+S).
3. Enter some text in the textbox to filter the scrips.
4. Check the "Pause on exceptions" checkbox.

The text entered in the textbox for filtering scripts is automatically removed when checking or unchecking the "Pause on exceptions" checkbox.

It seems that doing a updatePauseOnExceptions call has the effect of pausing and resuming the main thread, which triggers some events, which have the effect of clearing the searchbox.

We originally did this during the work week to avoid some inconsistencies, but it seems that everything is working ok so we can get rid of the behavior.
