My browser has a search-in-page feature and hotkey: normally when I press control-F I can enter a word and find it in the page.
This forum hijacks the control-F hotkey to implement its own search-in-page, but it doesn’t work at all: I can have the word I’m looking for sitting right in the middle of the screen and the forum control-F hijack won’t spot it. I can appreciate that a site which uses endless/infinite scroll may well want to help users by implementing its own search function, but it’s a little provocative to override users’ browsers’ native search functionality with a site search function that just doesn’t work, thus preventing us from searching at all. I can find search somewhere in my browser’s menu system, but it’s very deep in there, presumably because control-F is so automatic that the menu entry is practically unused.
Is there a way to disable the forum’s control-F hotkey hijack please? Could you make it a checkbox in user settings if not?
