There is a "search" function when you view your wishlist.  I can never get it to work.  I wanted to take a few books off my list by the same author.  I had to scroll through all pages instead of being able to search.  I've tried this function several times, and it hasn't worked for me.  Any tips?

It worked for me in my own, but first you have to have your wish list sorted by author instead of by title or position etc.  Have you double checked to make sure that is the case? smiley

I find myself typing in whatever I'm searching for and automatically hitting the "Enter" button.  The search function doesn't work that way; I have to specifically click on the "Search" button to get the results I want.  Gets me everytime!  Are you maybe doing that, too?

I'm with Erin - at least in my browser, I have to click 'Search' with the mouse, rather than press the return key, which seems to resort your list or something else other than execute the search.
