Disable CTRL+F hijacking

Nextcloud version: 20.0.8 (this issue has been around for a while).

I’m not sure where to ask, I couldn’t find other topics, sorry if this has been already dealt with.

I’d really like to be able to disable Ctrl + F hijacking. The global search thing can be very practical, but, I also use my browsers search functionality and the hijacking basically makes using the browser’s built-in search function very hacky (I have to press Ctrl + F + F, try to re-click the search box to move it out of the way and then go back to the browser’s search box…).

I often need to search on the page itself, but the Ctrl + F hijacking is making this very very (very) impractical.

I guess this is “support” if there’s a way to disable it, but perhaps this is feature request which I believe would be really beneficial. I would prefer to do Ctrl + F + F to activate Nextcloud’s search rather than the opposite.



I’d prefer Ctrl + Shift + F for custom search hooks :slightly_smiling_face:

Guess you’ll need to open an issue at GitHub, maybe there even is already one about this topic… :man_shrugging:
