"Filter Quick Commands" with a lot of bookmarks very slow
I just imported all my bookmarks from firefox now "Filter Quick Commands" entry is very slow. It takes about one second to recognize the second keystroke... not really usable anymore. Before I imported the bookmarks it was very fast. Is this something you work on?
I too have a lot of bookmarks. Not sure how to find the count, I'm guessing a couple hundred. There is a delay after the first keystroke where the whole application freezes for about 5 seconds. So the "Quick Commands" feature is for practical purposes unusable.
Not sure what is going on here? Better data structures or string search algorithm needed perhaps?

@rog1039 Oh, is that why? (I never knew and just decided to ignore the feature.)
I guess that makes sense given that I have several hundred bookmarks (not sure how to find out how many either).
Honestly, I'm not sure if that is the reason but there seem to be several reports on the forum of this issue and the people reporting the issue seem to have a lot of bookmarks (more than 100).
It's certainly a strange problem to have on a modern computer. I would be less surprised if this were to happen if I had 30,000 bookmarks. I think I only have several hundred so it seems even a poor algorithm should still be so fast as to not even freeze the application so perhaps something else is causing this issue.
I think the only people who could answer this would be the people who wrote the code for this feature.

I've noticed -don't remember in which version it started- that the Quick Commands box freezes exactly as described on this post from two years ago. I've realized that it happens when I access the History.
So, F2 works fine until I press Ctrl+H. Then it sucks and I have to restart the browser.
I am using Windows 7 64bit.
@chicodeoli this happens if you have a very large history file. Once you press ctrl+h your full history is loaded. One solution is just to disable history in quick commands.

Thank you. It works. Simple, yet not ideal.
I only noticed a few versions ago. It used to work fine before.
Maybe it's a buggy thing. I don't know.
But thanks again. You actually helped a lot.
