Code search finds words I didn't search for

workspace

#1

I’m searching thru my logs, and I search for “1001” and the search finds ‘1939’ and other random 4 digit numbers… I’m running this by hitting ‘ctrl-F’. I’ve rebooted my PC and restarted my brower, and it’s still happening. Its been happening on and off for a couple weeks now…

Thanks
Todd

Do you see this in the editor or terminal?
Also which browser do you use?


#3

I’m seeing it in the editor… So I’ll open up my log, and search for a string. I’m using Firefox 50.0.1 on a PC… and the weird thing is that when I search for a string across ALL my files it works great! Its just this local search that returns weird results.


#4

Can you try using Chrome 54, the latest Chrome, and see if the same problem occurs?


#5

Its great in Chrome! I guess I’ll move over… seems like Chrome is much better on a couple different fronts anyway… Ok… but yea its broken on Firefox…


#6

Yes, I used to use Firefox as my primary, but after switching to Cloud9 and hearing it worked better in Chrome (they develop towards their market, Chrome is the largest), I eventually switched to only using Chrome. My guess is they test very little in other browsers, so Chrome will work while the others don’t.


#7

Well, the search really isn’t working well in Chrome now either… Any help would be appreciated? Also after I try and search, and I’m running a console I have to minimize and then maximize in order to see the command prompt.

Hi
We were not able to find a way to reproduce this issue.
For which workspace do you see this issue?
Could you share a screencast demonstrating the issue?
