    In Mavericks and Yosemite, you could use the search bar to find something on a webpage. In El Capitan, it seems that is missing. You can still Command + F to pull up the Find bar, but I'm use to the Command + L shortcut to start typing in the search bar and then at the bottom it would say "X results on page".

    Has anyone found a way to reenable the old method? I've already checked all the search settings in Safari and did some searching around here, but haven't found anyone that has mentioned it.

    I really wish there was a setting to accommodate "find immediately on page when you type." I find that I use this feature a lot in Firefox.

    Still not in the latest beta of El Capitan? I really used this too in yosemite and miss it dearly.

    Lets hope Apple brings it back for us.

    I too found this missing. You can go to menu Edit and select find. Not quiet as easy

    Command+F works too. Just not as fast or easy as Command+L for the address bar.
