Your search page seems to have recently taken on a new bug that is going
to make me break something in frustration. (Coming close to pounding
fist on keyboard)
When I click to bring up the search criteria after an initial search, I often highlight the First
Name, for example, to search for spouse of the last searched person.
After this, as I try (key word 'try') to key in a new first name and
initial, it turns out the page was still loading even though it accepted
my mouse-drag highlighting. When I hit the spacebar (between name and middle initial), it acts like I hit enter and returns me to search results that I'd just been looking at.
I don't recall this happening until recently so I assume it's something
you have control over. Please fix this so the search box will NOT
accept input until the page loading process is complete. I've lost count
of the number of false starts I've had because of this and been slowed
down by repeating the same mouse/typing steps just attempted and waiting
for a redundant page reload when the 'space bar ENTER' scenario catches me.
Why I'm mentioning things, I do a lot of searches in a row and note my
memory usage climbing constantly. You should really look into clearing
memory usage on each new search. I've had to start closing the
familysearch page at regular intervals to keep the numbers down and my
system from getting slugginsh.
Thanks, just trying to help.
