In the Sites screen, if I search with an empty string, it shows the loading indicator forever.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the left drawer.
  2. In the SITES section, tap More Sites.
  3. In the Sites screen, tap the text field. The keyboard shows up.
  4. Tap Search in the keyboard.

Actual Results:

It shows the loading indicator forever.

Expected Results:

It shouldn't show a loading indicator. Perhaps it should act as if I tapped the Cancel button next to the text field.

Actually, why should there be a loading indicator in the first place? The search doesn't even require an internet connection.

This should be fixed in version 0.1.26. The issue existed for other places where we do a search, such as question search.

  • Verified fixed in 0.1.26.
