tl;dr: hit cmd + f / ctrl + f twice

discourse is the 2020+ hipster forum software everyone uses for the communities nowadays. I somewhat like it but it’s also mostly confusing to me.

What’s just super annoying is, that it hijacks the default shortcut for the browser’s search function cmd + f / ctrl + f. discourse thinks it’s smarter than you, but it’s just not, at least not for my use-cases. but hey, there’s a way to fix this, just hit cmd + f twice and it’ll fallback to the default browser search.
