Screenshot of the abrt gui

Description of problem:
When reporting a problem in abrt gui on one screen user should review the data before it gets reported. There are several tabs with information and on the bottom is warning: Possible sensitive data detected, please review the highlighted tabs carefully. In this case no tabs are highlited in any way. If the warning message is general and should be placed there everytime, then the message should be probably restructured to something like this: The report may include possible sensitive data, please review the tabs.
See attached screenshot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Crash some application with pkill -SIGSEGV application_name
2. Report the problem with abrt
3. Get to the screen with tabs and warning message
Actual results:
No tabs are highlighted and warning message says it should be

Expected results:
Restructured text of the warning or show this message only when some tabs are higlighted

Thank you for filling this report.

It is a bug in a code responsible for highlighting of forbidden words. The text is not visible if no tab is highlighted (no forbidden word is found). That means that the highlighting of tabs was lost somehow.

Just note to previous attachment. Warning message "...review the highlighted tabs..." is also displayed on dialog with no tabs.

Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 10:49:20 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '18'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2014-02-05 18:22:32 EST
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
