"Find" on this page is wierd


(Abhishek Gupta) #1

Got to any topic, say : [This one] (Download Archive of My Posts Implementation)

Press Ctrl+F and type “sam” (for instance)

Keep pressing enter(it should keeping moving to next find for “sam” )

And voila! the search interfaces closes unexpectedly .

Browser : Chrome 32


Discourse taking over Ctrl-F

What browser are you using?

I can confirm this using Chromium 32.0.1700.102-0ubuntu0.13.10.1~20140128.970.1.
When the browser finds a word you enter, the search interface closes. Being logged in or out does not make a difference in that respect.

In-browser search works normally when using Firefox 27.0 (on Ubuntu 13.10), though.

Also, I noticed that the function is not visibly broken on topic lists (which @Abhishek_Gupta already mentioned); my bug report refers to topics only.

Edit: I guess this issue has already been mentioned.

This is “Fixed” since we now disable find in page and take you to the find dialog.

We want better parity with find in page browsers provide, but its a subject for other feature requests.
