Can't use "find on this page" on Forums Home Page RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi,

    on the Forums home page (MSDN and Microsoft) the "find on this page" box of IE behaves very strange.

    The find box often produces "Text not found" results although I can sometimes even see the page is containing the word I was searching for.
    I am using IE 7 on Windows Server 2003 and have all Service Packs and Updates installed, and I'm sure that this behavior is not related to IE or the OS.

    Here are two examples:

    It did not find the word  "debug" (or any word that is longer like debugging, debugger, ...), the result is always  "Text not found" .
    It Even did not find  "deb"
    But it DID find  "de" !

    First thought was that the Forums list could not be searched at all, but since it does find (and select) all the "de"s, wyh doesn't it also find any  "deb" ?

    It also can not find  "Visual", or "vis", but it does find  "vi".

    Also navigating to another part of the page, or selecting a part of it does not affect the search.

    Could you please make the Forums list searchable ?

    I realy like IE and don't want to have to change to Firefox just to find the words I am looking for, or to know if there is a Forum at MSDN regarding to a topic.


    Any advice would be appreciated
