I'm trying to find an answer to a question about Thunderbird. I type it into the "Find help..." box. I get a page with a small number (maybe 10?) results. The first page of results doesn't seem to help. Neither do the next five pages. I suggest letting users choose the number of results per page. Being forced to click the "next" link on every page is slow and tedious. Hitting the "Page down" key on my keyboard is much faster, partly because I don't have to use the mouse.

Chosen solution

An alternative is to use your usual web search engine. You can restrict such a search to a particular site; you need to check how to do that with your particular search engine but typically you add the following: site:support.mozilla.org EDIT: because this site turns some text which isn't an url into a link, I am attaching a screenshot of my search box if I were searching for 'Thunderbird' only since you don't mention anything specific.

Thanks for the workaround, tjn21. I can also use DuckDuckGo search operators such as "-" to exclude or reduce entries with a particular word (like -osx). Enabling the "infinite scroll" setting lets me keep pressing Page Down as much as I want.
