This does involve some underlying functionality so is not entirely suitable for a GUI format report. But that functionality is simple in this case (just list sorting) so I will forward this to GUI bugs
My assumption, although I have not had direct communication with Comodo about this, is that for the companies in the TVL there will always be a very large number of them. Thus, it’s most efficient for the user if there is a find capability added in. Thus, I assume that’s why they added that in.
However, for the Untrusted Files, this should be a relatively short list. Thus, even if the list is long, it should be helpful to be able to sort it as skimming it to find what you want is still somewhat efficient. However, for the TVL skimming to find what you want will almost always be less efficient than a find option.
I assume that this is what was intended by Comodo, although I can look into this more if you like.
In my opinion this explanation is unconvincing: searching is not “more efficient” than sorting, it’s just different. Maybe I just want to to look through the alphabetically sorted Company column instead of searching for a specific Company. I expect for identical columns to have identical options, but the Company column in the “Trusted Files” section lacks functionalities when compared to the same column in the “Unrecognized Files” section.
Moreover, the “Unrecognized Files” sorting is broken like the Trusted Files sorting before being removed (see attachment).
Please create a new bug report for the issue with the sorting of the Unrecognized Files List. As this bug report was specific to the Trusted Files List I don’t want any confusion to slow down the devs from fixing it.
