Find that does not work

Post by gmo0 » Thu Feb 18, 2010 8:51 pm

There are many things about this browser that just do not work properly and never seem to get fixed. OK this is the first time I am reporting one problem that has come up but I do sometimes hope that when there are new releases more problems ar fixed .(My rant is now over)

Now my latest bug is I try and use the find facility and it just does not work Version 11.7.46

I type in words that are on the page but it says there are no matches but there are.

About the fixing bugs, some are already fixed in Avant 12 and some are related to Avant 12 so the developer leave them to get fixed later.

ctrl+F function doesn't work on specific or all pages? If on a specific page, could you give a link?

Make sure that the window you are searching has focus. There is a known bug that was reported because a new window doesn't automatically become active even though you see it in the foreground. Best way to make it active is to switch to another tab and then come back to the one you want to search.

If that's not it than I don't have any helpful suggestions.
