Default Search

I use an android tablet and phone and can't seem to be able to use the search function. Do I need an app?

You probably need to use the advanced search option. Don't know why but it works for me

I have an android tablet and it works fine using Firefox and the built in Internet app.

The search doesn't work on my Android Galaxy Tab2 7. However the advanced search does work. I think this might be a Javascript problem which errors on some tablets.

Also having problems with search on Android.
I have opened a notepad page and typed in the searches I want to make. Then copy and paste into search box and 'voila'!

just checked on my tablet and yes seems there is a problem, tap in the top search forums box and the keypad appears momentarily then disappears, however using the advance search works ok.

EDIT: same for the search projects box.
