Nice additions Andy!

Some curiosities I noticed :
* a bit of mis-alignment on some of the objects -
LiveCode Multi-Search_002.png
* a few different behaviors on a few different tabs.
- on the mailing list tab, with the cursor in the top search box, hitting the spacebar moved the page down
- on the multiple tabs, unpredictable events, sometimes the nabble search stole focus from the other search, sometimes keystrokes just vanished (like backspace, nabble/dictionary)

Thats all I have at the moment, maybe more to add later :D

Hi bogs, thanks for the feedback,

Odd, I cannot replicate any of what you describe and is shown in your image on Windows.

Which linux distro and version of LiveCode are you using?

The distro is straight up Debian 9 at the moment. I know your description on Lc Share says :
1.0.3 - removed spinner widget for v8.xx compatability. saved with V8.1.3 Community
but the latest IDE I can get to not act squirrelly on anything outside Ubuntu is 8.1.2, and that is barely marginal. It opened multisearch, though, and actually made it a standalone, so I was impressed at that point as it failed to do the same with the last version of MultiSearch.

I'll pull up a 'buntu machine and see if there is a difference, so we can have a more honest baseline.

Ok, that didn't take long, did it? It didn't go well either, but, the parts that didn't go well I don't think you could have solved :wink:

The following pictures are all from Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. First I took a whack at it with 9.0.4 rc2 -

Here is a (fuller) list -
StepOsTesters [Running] - Oracle VM VirtualBox_002.png
It is all in the lists...
I had forgotten that on 'nix, there is currently a browser issue going on that is still unresolved, so I dropped back to downloading and installing 8.1.3, but apparently that issue started around there.

However, despite the browser issue, you can still see the placement oddities with the labels (green) and tab strip .

I'll have to dl and install 8.1.2 on that machine and give it another go to see if the focus loss still occurs or not.
