Auto complete starts to show search results without pressing enter

If I remember correctly, we would start typing the search term and I’d see results pop up right away.

Now I have to press enter or click.

Is there a setting to revert to the old behavior?

The closest topic I found was this one, not sure if it relates ( in the sense that this is just Discourse evolving)

No, unfortunately not — doing a full search on every keystroke was costly in terms of app performance. It was a rather large refactoring of how our quick search works (UX: Revamp quick search by pmusaraj · Pull Request #14499 · discourse/discourse · GitHub), so it’s not something that’s easily possible to include a setting for.

That crossed my mind but wasn’t sure, it’s nice to see work on keeping the app efficient.
