I am using Firefox 84.0.1 on Manjaro and have rust-docs installed. I enabled offline mode and set the path to file:///usr/share/doc/rust/html/. Search itself works fine: for example, when I type "rs result" into the search box, it shows me a bunch of results with correct local paths, such as file:///usr/share/doc/rust/html/std/fmt/type.Result.html. But when I hit Enter, nothing happens. I tried the same with Chromium and everything works fine.

Hi @burjui. Thanks for reporting. This is a known issue for Firefox, we have a simple workaround for this. See the FAQ

By the way, I didn't know that this is not a bug, because I discovered the feature by accident, not from the website. Maybe you could add some kind of hint to this feature on Firefox, so that users immediately know about this unfortunate file: issue? Something like a balloon message over the local doc text field.

Great suggestion! I'll do it. 👍
