? Read my first post. I don't care about other forum. I'm talking about the search function, which contains all the other forums which I do not care about.

And I've already told you how to search WITHIN an individual device forum, without having to scroll through the list.

I use "search all forums" everyday since I'm RC and more since I joined XDA Assist team.
I cannot know all forums for giving the good directions has request.
Therefore I use "Type to find your device" when the device is named or "Search all forums" when the request is for a generic device or app.
I use both search functions without problem, and I'm on Chrome and FF

XDA Assist is the place where you can get help finding your way on XDA. This is not a support forum !!!
Click and go to XDA-Assist
DONT PM ME FOR QUESTIONS RELATED TO ROM, Ask in thread, it's better for all members- THANKS

You're still pretty bad at the interwebs. In case you can't tell, that's not actually XDA's search function but rather the one built into the BB code. That search area you put in your screenshot is the same across thousands upon thousands of forum sites that use the same code (think the search function built into windows being the same across millions of PCs).

On the OTHER hand, the actual search functions that XDA has coded are the ones right up there in the upper right of this screen that say search all forums and type to find your device. Both of those are mind numbingly easy to use.
