Search bar should be always visible, on top, and searching should not require hitting enter - just entering text, i.e. it should behave similarly to google.com
Oh, and entries that do not match search should be hidden, instead of just selecting the first match
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Certainly in V3.26, the Find bar is always visible once it is invoked unless the user closes it.
Given the work necessary (e.g decrypt fields in entries) to search what could be a large database for the find, we will not try to make PasswordSafe find like Google. They are different 'beasts'.
As to hiding those that do not match the find requirements, this is already available via Filters (via View menu).
What if the search functionality was split in two:
As suggested - main dialog focused .. user enters text
New text box appears to take focus and show typed in search terms
Dialog blanks out to show search results
each OnChange call will then perform the search, ONLY against Group Title and Entry Title - no other items
Hit add way too quickly.
This way, you could quickly type a few characters, find your entry, then be able to double-click to get the password (or usual context menu to get username, etc.)
Would speed up retrieving/editing entries quite a bit for medium to large sized users
