      Original message

      The stash pull request diff view (both side-by-side and unified) break page search due to their fancy javascript-based scrolling. Only the visible region (plus a bit extra) of the diff is stored in the DOM, so your browser's search can only find stuff in that visible region. This is premature optimization: A web browser can easily hold the entire DOM tree for the diff between multi-thousand line files.

      Related to this: a number of our developers have had issues with diffs not scrolling properly.
