The search results are illegible in the "dark theme" due to lack of contrast between text and background, resulting in a poor user experience. Just wanted to pass it on.

Yes, this is very frustrating!

Really glad you brought this up, as I would like to add the question:

Why are the search results even coming up 'light' like that, instead of 'dark', if I'm in the 'dark mode' when I do the search?

It truly is beyond frustrating...

Just float over each and it gets highlighted.

It is not a good feature though. I would prefer the same color scheme throughout.

Also, an LCARS type interface would be awesome. (Star trek type menus)

This is a known condition which occurred after Search was completely broken (by provider changes) a few weeks ago. I'm not sure where it is on the priority list, but rest assured it is somewhere on a list
(at least search is working
)

In the interim, the work-around I use is to highlight the results with your cursor, like this...

I tried but it doesn’t help. I suppose I’ll switch themes.

Stupid question - where do I find the search feature? I see one at the right hand top of my screen but it yields google searches. How can I search just this site? TIA and sorry for the dumb question - I am probably blind.

You were right. That is the site search feature. It only searches the site.

It's worked for me.

Not for me.



I'll just switch to the other theme when searching.

All the workarounds using a mouse are useless on my Android tablet.
