Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1466666
ctrl+f stopped working in qupzilla
Last modified: 2017-11-27 10:08:48 EST
Description of problem:
After recent update of qt5-qtwebengine, the keyboard shortcut "ctrl+f" to find text within page has stopped working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run qupzilla
2. open some webpage
3. hit 'ctrl+f'
a text search field opens at the bottom of window where you can enter a string you want to find within the page
The searching itself works if invoked from menu.
Other keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+t, ctrl+w, ctrl+q ... work as expected.
Cannot reproduce, ctrl+f works as expected here. Same qtwebengine version and latest qupzilla in f26.
> What I know is that Ctrl+f is not working right in plain text files even with
> QtWebEngine 5.8.0. So I don't think that that is a regression from this update.
with previous version, I've experienced some issues that
a) happened randomly
b) could be fixed by clicking somewhere within the webpage then retrying the shortcut
so I suspected some strange focus stealing
however, after the update, it is different - it happens for 100% and clicking into page doesn't help
just tell me what would be useful to know - should I strace something etc.?
... btw, I use LXQt if that matters (yes, I do have some other shortcut-related issues like printscreen not invoking lximage-qt)
Can you please test whether qt5-qtwebengine-5.9.2-2.fc26 (now queued for testing) fixes this?
QtWebEngine 5.9.2 should fix https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-61621 , which might be the cause of this issue.
As far as I can tell, this is indeed fixed in 5.9.2: I am running qt5-qtwebengine-5.9.2-2.fc25 now, and Ctrl+F works for me now (I don't have to click into the location bar to make it work anymore). I am therefore closing this bug, please reopen it if the issue persists.
