    As the title states.. Can't seem to search for certain text/words in webpages any more. Is it hidden somewhere? Thanks in advance. And yes, i tried searching the forums and Google first.

    Additionally, I kindly ask if you do not have an answer, do not reply(unless to indicate your S6 browser has it indeed). Thank you

    It can be found next to the address bar under settings (three vertical dots).

    Hello, those "dots" are no longer in my "internet" app(s6 stock browser). That "dot" symbol was replaced by "more" which doesn't include the option. BTW this is a T-mobile handset

    Did you try searching that Help menu? Might have an answer. Otherwise you could switch to Chrome which has the feature you're looking for.

    try tap menu button to the left of home button.

    Presence of hardware button suppressed the "three dots".

    Lol y'all don't seem to understand that S6 has a different Web browser ui haha.

    Anyway, tap and hold on anywhere that has text within the Web page (like you usually would when you wanna highlight, copy/paste a text) then you'll see a 'find'

    Or just start typing in the address bar. A find on page option will show up by the auto complete options.

    Thanks for the reply Gabriellow. I was pretty disappointed when I thought they had removed it
