Chosen item number appearing in next search bug
« on: October 29, 2006, 06:47:52 AM »
Mouser,

This bug was mentioned recently, but I think I've got a 100% repeatable test case that you can try it on.

For me at least, if you use the numpad to invoke an item, the number you selected will show up as the initial search field the next time you bring FARR up, but only if the item is a URL. It seems to happen both with .URL files and with URLs in aliases. I don't seem to ever see it happen with anything else.

Hopefully this will give you a better idea where the problem might lie.

thanks for reminding me about this - i think i reintroduced this at my last round of optimizations; ill try to fix this in the next couple of days since i know it's a showstopper.

It doesn't actually bother me that much, but I can see it being a showstopper for the "Must. Launch. Faster." aficionados. :) Don't get me wrong - I do like the speed at which FARR lets me launch stuff, but the thing that really makes it work for me is the sheer reduction in effort it provides.
