Hello. I’m proposing a change to how search works on the desktop app. I love Bitwarden overall but this part of the desktop app causes me frustration.
With the iOS version if you hit the magnifying glass to search you only see your search results and it’s clear that you’re still in search mode. You can’t select another “type”, such as “Login” until you hit the “Close” button to exit search.
With the desktop version that’s not the case at all and it’s easy to not realize you’re still in search mode. For example, I have “All Items” selected and enter a search term of “Amazon”. I click on the item I wanted and view the details about it I was interested in. I come back to my computer 5 hours later and want to see details about one of my credit cards. I click on “Card” under types and get “ There are no items to list.” That’s because “Amazon” is still in my search bar from 5 hours ago.
If the search terms were cleared after a certain amount of time it would help make this scenario less likely to occur.
