I think everything is sort of temporary until they get stuff fixed.

Guess I've never used it but what is the autofill function?

Do you mean in the search bar - when you start typing and a drop-down box appears with several suggestions?  Just tried it and it does appear to be missing now but I never found it all that helpful so I hadn't missed it.  Like Charles said, probably just a casualty of what's going on at a deeper level with all the search problems that TPTB are currently working on.

I hated the auto-fill so much... I hope it never comes back. Most of the time it auto-filled something related, but with weird punctuation so it would almost always kick back 0 results because it filled with invalid search parameters.

I liked it. It is especially handy if you don't know exactly how to spell somebody's name.

Fair point. I was regretting saying that I hoped it was gone for those that did enjoy it. I would just really like a way to turn it off or at least an easy way to not have it auto-fill things I don't want.
