It is not a bug. It was designated this way. If you want to open the class without closing that dialog, you can double click the script name. Maybe we should change the caption from "Go to" to "Goto and close". Or what other users think? If you read this, please say your opinion: Should "Go to" button close the dialog? Also note: repeated searching should take less time as the files are already decompiled and cached.

I know that you can double click to 'GoTo' without closing the dialog, but since it is unusual to have just 1 'search' result, why on earth would one want to 'GoTo and Close' otherwise? Very, very POOR design! If searches were properly cached (ffDec leaves a huge number of Temp files in the 'Temp' Directory) then it would not matter so much. But it does take a really long time to perform the search AGAIN, although it may be faster now that I've upgrade my 'Boot' Drive to SSD.
I still think this is a bug that needs to be fixed. Repeated searches are a lot faster now, but the window really needs to stay open after a 'Goto'!
