In the Favorites window, the search scope reverts to "Open Projects" sometimes after a specific search scope (selected directory in the Favorites window was active and worked before. When this happens, cursor movement up and down some favorites does not produce desired results. I must click on the directory to get the scope back to "Selection". The complicating factor seems to be that this is intermittent. Sometimes I overlook this and get surprised that the search is so quick and does not return any results. At some stage I saw this is was caused by NetBeans losing focus, but I cannot reproduce this. On the positive side, at least the scope in the search dialog reflects what is being searched. I feel sorry that I cannot easily reproduce this, but on the other and I think I should report this as something like this should be impossible.
