Relating to XXE 8.0 (and perhaps earlier versions as well):
When the (new) Find Element dialog locates an element that matchces the
search criteria, the element receives a red outline. This way the users
knows that there is a match.
But if an element this way has been matched (and has received the red
outline), and you - after that - changes the search criteria and hit
“Search” once again, then there is no (visual) signal that shows you
that the new criteria works.
Well, if the new criteria does not match anything, I would expect the
red outline to disappear. But that does not happen. Thus, the fact that
the red outline remains, does not mean that there is match. In other
words: Once there has been a match, the visual feedback is the same
whether or not the new criteria matches the same element or not.
Would I would like to suggest is that if the criteria does not match
anything, then the red outline is removed. This way the user gets to
know that there was no match for the new criteria.
