I believe that the CHROME browser is still a beta version so this forum has not fully updated for the use of that browser. Is there any way that you can use IE, OPERA, or Firefox for the time being to use the search?
Also, I don't know if this will work or not for you, but in every section of the forum, you can actually do a quick search. Look around for "SEARCH THIS FORUM
". It should hopefully be there.
I will also PM this thread to one of the Tech Mods/Admins and see what they say.
