I copied this URL into location bar after fom log after a browser crash: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&email1=&emailtype1=substring&emailassigned_to1=1&email2=&emailtype2=substring&emailreporter2=1&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&changedin=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&product=Browser&component=Networking&short_desc=search&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&long_desc=&long_desc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&status_whiteboard=&status_whiteboard_type=allwordssubstr&keywords=&keywords_type=anywords&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=&cmdtype=doit&namedcmd=Any&newqueryname=&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time Interestingly I was given the option to search for this by Google (my preferred search) in a pulldown menu. Expected: fully specified URL should not be searched When I wanted to delete the thin again I wanted to use Home,C-K. But Home key moved cursor to the beginning of the text box, not the contained text so I had to use C-K quite a few times. Expected: move to start of the text BTW is there anywhere documantation of the keyboard shortcuts in different widgets? I think the whole lot became a bit messy. The same key combo sometimes does quite different things depending on active widget.
Actually, Google allows searches on URLs. For example: http://www.google.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mozilla.org&sourceid=mozilla-search
-> URL Bar
Component: XP Toolkit/Widgets → URL Bar
I think this is a won't fix as it is a feature that is useful (i.e. access a page that is down using google's cache)
--> xpapps. nothing to do with core widgetry.
I agree, if anything this is a dupe of the "provide option to disable search in dropdown" or whatever that bug is called... but we still want this capability to exist.
I personally don't mind the search option for the URL, it's just confusing (and even more confusing with Search button without any Go There button). It would be a good idea to write somewhere what's this option good for. I didn't find any documentation saying what different key combos are supposed to do inside different widgets. I don't know if the current behavior of location bar is incorrect but it's unexpected. This is possibly more lack of documantation than lack of funcionality.
