    Just got our new Tesla home. I updated it to the latest version, and now, whenever I bring up the owner's manual and search for text, the box for entering text flashes up and disappears. I've been using that feature a lot, and it always worked fine. I can search in an individual topic, but not for the whole manual.

    Anyone else see that?

    I apologize for the shakiness, but here's a video that shows the problem:

    Just use the website under your login.

    When viewing a web site on the car's display, is there a way to search for text?

    Does anyone else see this problem in their car?

    Can't help you there. Never used the browser in our cars. Phones' browser is so much faster LOL.

    It worked a couple of updates ago, but the functionality is broken in the current release.

    I get the same behavior as the OP.

    Phew. I'm glad I'm not the only one. That means it may be fixed.

    How often are updates sent out?

    Lately, every few days haha. Problem is, no one seems to know what all the recent patches are fixing because all the really bad bugs still seem to be present.

    HERE'S A WORKAROUND:

    This workaround isn't perfect, but in many cases it will help you find what you're looking for. Remember, that although you can't search the entire manual, you can search an individual topic. So, do this: Open the manual and scroll down on the left side until you come to "Index of Terms." Select that topic, and search (within the topic) for what you're looking for.

    Yes, mine is doing the same thing, too. I can certainly access the manual from other methods, ie phone, computer etc, but the point is, we should be able to access and SEARCH the manual from the in-car screen. Just got the 50.7 update yesterday, so don’t know if it’s related or not.

    I wonder if this is related to the same bug that prevents me from searching music in Slacker?
