Merry Christmas Eve:
This morning I was looking at permies on my phone and then moved to my laptop and searched for "Sharol Tilgner", "hot flashes", and "Natural Relief for hot flashes" using my laptop. All results returned "0". I use FireFox. Do I have to install the plug-in? In general, I avoid all Java apps.

As a side note, it would be nice to have a "follow" button on Android.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Is it possible it was only searching one forum?
The default is to search the form you are viewing when you press search.  So I read your note, press search at the top of the screen and it searches only "tinkering with this site".  I have to choose "all available" to search the whole of permies.

it would be nice to have a "follow" button on Android.  



That's a good idea.

You don't have to install that plugin.

I don't like downloading stuff either. Below is a screenshot of how I filled out the search fields:

And the thread it gave me.

I hope this helps with your future searches.
