Fix errors with searching. Searching across site never finds results in other pages.
Searching for text on other pages almost never works. I can search for a term I'm staring at on the current page, and nothing appears in the Find Results. And many times when I hit CTRL-F, the find box appears but focus isn't set to it and I start typing the search text into the current document.
SOLUTION: it seems that collapsing the Sites|Files|Databases|Reports navigation pane (located under the file explorer) will cause problems with search and some other functions. It could be a coincidence but keeping it expanded has eliminated the symptoms for me so far.

during two ctrl + F, is there any other operation?
I have the same problem. I'm searching in local view. I'm on Windows 7.
I have roblems with search too. I'm in local view. CTRL+F initially works but after a few times it starts misbehaving: it fails to put the cursor in the search box and "All files in site" doesn't find anything, Please fix this - Webmatrix has great potential but without reliable search it'll be fairly useless as an IDE.

Are you searching in remote view, or in local view?
