[Solved] "Find" box empty after visiting next page on the same website

  • "Find" box empty after visiting next page on the same website
    Like for forums software.
    On forums you often have more than one pages for a subject, e.g.
    on this Opera forum (~350 pages!!!).
    Allthough there is often a search option, it does not always work efficently.
    As the results are ofen showed in a condensed way, so you keep on clicking, even when there are more results on the same subpage.
    So i often use the page search option (Ctrl + F) to search that sub page.
    But it uou go to the next subpage... the "page search box using "ctrl +F" is empty.....
    So you have to copy the search string into the meory with "ctrl +C" in order to avoid the neede to retype it every tiem you go to the next sub page.

    The page search bx is a very strong tool but it lacks to keep the search string when you go to the next sub page.

    Is a bug or still a non-Opera feature?

  • I haven't tried it in recent versions, but typically Find next (F3) remembers the last typed search term.

  • This is how it having been working since the beginning. As said, you can use F3 to search in the next page using the same keyword.

  • Aha... if you just do next page the search box is empty, but after F3 is reappers ..

  • reappears.....
