Ctrl-f broken on nvidia forums

When I go to some pages on the nvidia forums for instance (Transfer video frames from a PCIe capture card to Jetson TX1 device memory (for RT video processing)) I press ctrl-f to search the text on the page and the nvidia forums search bar activates.

Hi @kjasper,

Thanks for reaching out. The forum platform only captures the “ctrl + f” functionality if the topic has more than 20 posts. If the topic has fewer than 20 posts the browser’s default search will be used instead.

You can bypass the forum search with “ctrl + f + f”. When that is done, the browser’s search box should open instead of the forum search.

Best regards,

Why does it do this?

It is by the vendor’s design. This is necessary because not all posts are loaded in the DOM at any given time, only the visible ones are.
