Searching via Ctrl+F doesn't work for me very well - it returns randomly an occurrence of the sought word.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Shouldn't be random occurances of the word unless it's pulling partial matches. All searches should run from top down or bottom up in order. If you only want it as part of a certain phrase, try expanding the search match to contain the word before or after what you are looking for.

Can you give an example? Show a line which matches and one which doesn't.

Are you using regular expressions? Is it case-sensitive? Are you searching forwards or backwards?

No regexps. Forwards and backwards. It happens at least every fifth search).

I'll try to provide a line once it happens again..
