I have the same issue on both ie & FF, You have to clear all history and cookies in both and then login, search, and then opt out of new (crappy) search. This seems to cure for a while.

The only thing I like with the newer search is that you dont have to refresh when watching those retro items go under the hammer :wink:

Browse the cookie folder and delete the ebay ones instead, it'll be pretty obvious which ones to delete.

Tools--->Options from top of Firefox menu

Click the "privacy" tab

Select "show cookies"

Browse and delete at will :)

incidently, i think the "opt out" feature is now on the my ebay main page, top right, can also opt back in if your crazy enough, or you want to spend an extra 6 days searching for the part that would normally take 6 seconds
