F3 does not toggle search-in-page…
CURRENT: F3 opens search-in-page, but it doesn't close it. Escape will close it, and most other controls, but F3 should also close it. NEW: F3 toggles (show/hide) the search-in-page function. [i]Ctrl+F should work identically to F3[/i]
no, it's the intended behaviour and it's ok like this, exactly as other programs do.
f3 repeats last search too.
It's a bug, if the intention is to replicate the behaviour of Old Opera. Ctrl F is the shortcut to show the find toolbar, not F3.
(VB-18100) Find in Page Toolbar Shows with F3 Find Next
There is no need to show the find toolbar to find the next or previous occurrence of a text string.
However, if no text string has been entered yet, then the Find Toolbar does need to be shown, as happens in Opera 12.17.
Ah, I see. That does make sense.
I'd like to suggest an improved behavior:
1. F3 open search-in-page
2. Enter jumps to next match, and Shift/Enter go to previous match.
3. F3 toggles the open/close state.
