Search files for/ctrl+shift+f doesnt work in Glitch editor or VSCode

“Search files for” hasn’t been working for me for a long time, whether I do it in the Glitch editor or in VSCode (and in vscode, when I use ctrl+shift+f).

In VSCode, doing it through ctrl+shift+f just makes it load forever. When I use the search panel in the sidebar though, it shows results in the files I currently have open, but I want it to show results in all files.

Thanks for the feedback @advaith!

So we can document this issue can you please let us know the following:

  1. What operating system are you using?
  2. What web browser are you using?
  3. Does this happen for you if you use a different browser?

Windows 10, I tried on new Edge and Chrome and both have the same result. Looking at devtools, I see a POST request to that has a 500 response code.

stderr: “grep: neofetch: Is a directory↵”

Project name: advaithbot-beta

Thanks for that info! I wanted to recreate this issue, but I’m currently using a different operating system. When you have a moment, can you make a screencast showing you trying to use search in the Glitch Editor?

If you prefer, you can send it to

I managed to fix the issue in the Glitch Editor by using the console to delete the “ghost” neofetch folder, but it seems to still be broken in VSCode.
