On the old nautilus if you were in a folder and typed something then
it skipped down to the first matching file.  In the new one if you
just type then it opens the search bar and filters the current folder
based on what you type (without recursing),  To get it to do a full
search I believe you have to click All Files, and that seems to do
nothing.  Does that agree with your experience?#
