In-page search (ctrl+f)



  • When searching in page (ctrl+f) I found some issues: * searching does not make difference between diacritics: "ene" found all "ène" "ene" and "ené" -- Ideally make checkbox option for this sensitivity (e.g. in french texts I am not sure if there should be è or é, but in my language I want to search sensitive) * missing checkbox for "exact word" (try to search short word in long page, like language with code "apa" in https://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionnaire:Liste_des_langues) * case sensitivity * while fast typing, some characters are missing (I want to write "apl" but in textbox is only "al"



  • Some good suggestions there.

    I don't see any issue with dropping characters while typing fast.

    Can you try it in mentioned (huge) list on fr.wiktionary?



  • It drops characters. When you type fast enough it eats letters. But not only the search function, I have noticed this in other parts as well, example, in the notes, or when renaming a bookmark I have to type extremely slow so it actually types each letter.

    For search it does not happen on every website, but I did noticed the issue, in some sites when you search something and type fast enough it tends to eat letters.

    As suggestion, I would like an option to dim the page darker when you search something except the results found. I think an older Opera version had this and I really found it useful. The whole pages goes darker so you can see faster where the word is you where looking.

    Remember that users don't read line by line, they scan websites, so this feature was great because it focused directly on the search result. I understand some may not like that so it could be maybe optional.

    Opera 12 did (does) this.

    Yes, I can reproduce the issue on the wiktionary page.



  • +1 I want the dimming features as Opera 12. It's great.

    I cannot confirm / reproduce that. (win7x64 vivaldi 1.0.94.2)

    Same here. I hope this can be fixed soon.
