Comments on Search

This page and HowToSearch and FirefoxQuickSearch should be updated. (Because of the new DuckDuckGo search engine.)

I did what I could. Let me know if there are more instances.

Thank you! I’ll edit myself or let you know if I find some other instances.

I am not seeing a search box at the top of the page anymore. What gives?

Nic – it’s at the bottom, with an undocumented “language” input. I asked as well over at Comments on HowToSearch

The trouble is everything still says “use the search box at the top”. SIGH.

Could we have some keyindex to focus it? Alt+s or something?

NicFerrier 2013-05-22 14:46 UTC


We already have. accesskey=“f”.

I haven’t changed any of the text, because I didn’t know if it was an oversight, or part of a work-in-progress.

I think I would prefer search at the top of the page.

I don’t want the top of the page cluttered, but there are a number of sites (like https://github.com) that pack a lot if technical info and menus into a small space.
