Changing color of filter "button" in Proxy/HTTP History when using "Search Term"

Please consider changing the color of the "Filter" button within the Proxy/HTTP window, or elsewhere also, when a "Search Term" is being used. Sometimes, during long tests, the filter can be "forgotten" and unnecessary troubleshooting can begin. I realize this is something the application user should be aware of. But, when we are several bags of crisps in and its late at night, this could be a lifesaver. :) Hoping to draw attention to when this particular filter is obscuring output, please. Thank you, Tom

Hi Tom, Would you only envisage this being in place when a search term is being used or would you expect it to be more prominently displayed if other filters were applied as well? I ask because, obviously, it is conceivable that you set up some non-search term filters that have the same impact of hiding your traffic and potentially confusing users as to where that traffic is.
