When using a filter on a field of type list the "search icon" is available even if it is not a referenced field. This prevents the use of the contains operator to search this field. On clicking the search icon gives a "page not found".

Steps to Reproduce

Below link directs to out of the box fields of type list that don't contain a reference.


sys_app_version.dependencies is an example from this list

Navigate to table sys_app_version.list.

Try to use column name "dependencies" with the contains filter. It cannot be used because the system expects a reference which is not always the case for this field type


Click on the "search" icon and a page not found message is displayed 

"The page you are looking for could not be found."
