Whitespace Trimming in Search Bar affects queries negatively

(Icrawler) #1

Every time the search page updates its results the search bar trims all the whitespaces in the query.


This is mildly annoying when using backspace to modify queries as I end up accidentally deleting an extra letter.

There’s also one other side-effect that I found: occasionally spaces get eaten up when typing too slowly:



Firefox 59.0.2 x64 / Windows 10 Pro

Additional remark: I don’t think it’s necessary for whitespaces to be trimmed in the client-side.



Thanks for the report! We’ll get that fixed.


Looks like this is fixed now. Can you confirm?
