    When I try and search for a stock it autofills like it should, but when I try and "Get Quote" I get an error.

    That particular stock (CUNB) is malformed in the Yahoo Feed. There isn't anything that can be done about it. The data that the autofill functionality needs is valid, however, the full record is not.

    I marking this as not a bug, because the addon is supposed to throw this error when there are problems with the stock feed.

    Okay, this is just one example of many we are finding. It's not a real big deal, but it has happened more than a few times.

    ya, the autocomplete data returned by Yahoo is not by any means perfect and it doesn't automatically mean that its a valid stock. I could write a novel on the issues with the Yahoo Feed lol I do my best tho to stop those stocks with errors from messing up the Addon, which is why I have checks in place to prevent stocks like this and many others from being introduced into the system.

    If you want to, compile a list over the next couple days. It could be that there is an exchange name different between the Autocomplete Feed and the Stock Feed (this was an issue with London Stocks and the autocomplete).
