Description Rainer Bielefeld 2014-03-24 05:47:35 UTC
Steps how to reproduce:
1. new advanced search (click 'Search' in Bugzilla Heading -> Advanced Search
   if necessary
2. deselect "Resolution: ---" with <ctrl + click>
3. check "and remember these as my default search options" at bottom of page
4. [search]
   > You will find 500 results, may be all after having removed that
5. Click 'Search' in BZ heading again to start new advanced search
   Bug: Unexpectedly the "Resolution: ---" will be highlighted again.

I did some more research, it seems to be impossible to have a default search
without any search criterion. If you want to remove the "Resolution: ---" you will have to define an alternative criterion, for example "@" for any  Assignee ...  a Commenter. That can be saved and will find all issues (as it seems limited to 10000 hits what can be shown), but that is not elegant and will slow down search.

The problem is not that someone might want to have a complete list of all issues by default, but it might be worrying to have that criterion by default, and users might forget to unselect that if required; see "Issue 124492 - Advanced Search (Default search): entries in all selectors should be unselected by default"
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-03-24 07:03:22 UTC
If we will need a fix for Issue 124492 an alternative to removal "Resolution: ---" might be to have selected all resolutions. I did not see any slow down when I used that as search criterion in a tabular report.
