Issue 8655: Search doesn't work if you type too fast

Reported by, Mar 29 2018 Project Member

Issue description

Affected Version: 475.0

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Type [file:] in the search box
2. Wait for autocomplete popup to appear
3. Type [x] <Enter> as close together as possible, such that Enter is pressed before the autocomplete popup disappears.

What is the expected output?
Search for [file:x]

What do you see instead?
Search for [file:], which is an error.

If you use a query type that sends requests to the server, the race window is much larger: the initial [foo:] popup doesn't disappear until it gets a request back from the server, which may be several hundred ms or more. You don't have to type *that* fast to finish a complete query and press enter in that 1s.

I don't know if something has changed recently to make this worse, but I feel like I am running into this daily.

Still happends (reopening) happens on gerrit-review and on

It should wait for you to press enter twice if it has drop down results so that you can press enter on for example status: and start typing in more and drop down shows.

What you're describing where confirming partial suggestions takes you to a query of that partial suggestion, which is a different bug. I've filed 8920.
