Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2005-03-21 02:11:17 UTC
If a search returns no results, the layout of the page implies that the 'save
search' box is really a 'search again' box.  I often type a new search term into
this box and end up accidentally saving the search.  I would suggest that the
page includes the 'search bugs' form (with all 3 boxes), and a separate 'save
this search' box to avoid this problem and to aid refining of your search terms.

This is a general Bugzilla problem and should be reported at
Comment 2 Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2005-03-21 13:16:06 UTC
