Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130618035212

Steps to reproduce:

- Opened a page which contians many CSS sources.
- Opened Style Editor from developer tools and tried to search for some element class or id in the styles.


Actual results:

- No easy way for jumping to the next found element even within the same style source (except for pressing Ctrl+F and searching again).
- The search works only for the selected style, forcing one to go over each style one by one to perform the search.



Expected results:

- Search should iterate through all CSS sources without manual switching between them.
- There should be some easier way to jump to the next matching substring.

This request makes a lot of sense. In fact having the same kind of search tool that we have over in the debugger would help a lot. The debugger's search allows to:
- open a file (cmd/ctrl+P)
- search within a file (cmd/ctrl+F)
- search across files (cmd/ctrl+alt+F)
(and a couple others).

Heather? Do we already have a bug for this?
Could you comment on how feasible this would be?

I think this is the bug for it (=

The debugger is a bit different in that it also searches symbols and has JS-specific options. I would say this would take a non-trivial amount of time.
