Press the first letter and you are taken to an irrelevant part of the page. If, by adding more letters, you discover your search string isn't found, you are now forced to manually reposition to where you were reading. This is USELESS and VERY ANNOYING, especially on long pages! The search should take place when the user hits 'RETURN' ! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Press "/" or "Ctrl-F" 2. Type "f" because you are searching for "frobnitzduck" 3. Add letters until it's clear that there are no occurrences of the word. Actual Results: You are taken to a useless part of the page. You need to manually scroll back to where you were reading. Expected Results: The browser should not have scrolled away from where I was reading!
