The "Go to Label" Lab feature should work as follows:
- Press g then l (goto label)
- Hovering input box opens
- Start typing a label's name or a folder name (Inbox, Trash, etc.)
- Suggestions appear as I type to a dropdown list
- Select a label from the list / type the whole label
HOWEVER When I trigger the keyboard shortcut, hovering input box opens with
l already put*. Suggestions won't appear. Nothing happens when I press enter.
2011-06-30 Pressing g then l won't even show the input box anymore.
The feature is broken. I have tried Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera on OS X.
I have the following other Labs features enabled**:
- Extra Emoji
- Search from autocompletion
- Undo send
- Add images
- Unread messages icon
- Send & Archive
- Mark as read button
- Title improvements
- Fetch POP-accounts
- Recently used Emoji
- Signature tweaks
- Go to label (duh)
- Message peek
Are any/some/a combination of these known to be in conflict with the "Go to label"? With my current Labs settings there is quite a lot of possible combinations, so trial & error might not be worth the hassle as I still can use the search box and click on the labels on the list on the left.
Also @Al Everett confirmed the Go to Label works for him as advertised, so I believe some other Lab feature is preventing it from working correctly. (I might investigate this, unless someone knows the answer straight away.)
For what it's worth, I actually have Google Apps mail — but a help article suggests the versions don't differ that much.
l isn't input in Firefox, otherwise it (dys)functions the same
