    BF search function sucks!!!!!

    Works maybe half the time? I guess we go elsewhere for searchs and then come back when were done.
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    For me, works about 1/4 of the time. "Page not available" is by far my most popular search result. But, I suppose patience is a virtue. Better to have tried 21 times and failed, then to have shotgunned the monitor after the 20th try.

    I use it all the time with no problems.

    Post a specific search inquiry - maybe we can help.

    Just doing some seat inquiries, and for the last 2-3 days it bonks at least half the time. No biggee, just frustrated.

    This in interesting. My observations ...

    At home on my wireless network it NEVER works with IE
    At home on my wireless netowork it ALWAYS works with Firefox
    At work, hardwired or wireless always works with IE

    There have been NO EXCEPTIONS to the above observations.

    I have yet to figure out what's going on.

    No problems here. Occasionally slow, but we're accumulating a massive database of knowledge here.

    EDIT: I am a Firefox and Konqueror user.

    How are you going after the search? (search the forums or search this forum?)
    do you notice the problem is consistent around vague searches (i.e. saddles) or
    more refined searches (i.e. Brooks B17N Saddles) ?

    I use firefox almost exclusively and have not had problems with search
    (and I use it alot). I have noticed some slowdown of response lately
    but we have had alot of "guests" signed on.
    I'll post in Mod forum and see if we can sort this out.

    Sometimes it is the word.

    Instead of seat, try Saddle.
