Same here, same system. I don't know if it's normal, but it seems to

Every time a new version of Netsurf is made available I look at the "work
done" bit of the page. While much of the information is obviously useful to
programmers it would be nice to have something which told users what has
changed in the latest version.

Using StrongED interactive search, you can search for 'NetSurf' and
'browser' as many times as you like, in whichever order you like, but
still only one copy of each appears in the search-menu.
If you click 'NetSurf' in the search-menu, and change it to 'browser',
the search-menu contains 'browser' and 'NetSurf' (one copy of each).
If you click 'NetSurf' in the search-menu, and change it to 'Fresco',
the search-menu contains 'Fresco', 'NetSurf' and 'browser'.
Couldn't NetSurf emulate this behaviour?

That is a great improvement, many thanks.
However, there is a problem:
Search for 'NetSurf'
Search for 'browser'
The find-text menu now contains
Click on 'NetSurf' to search for that again
The find-text menu now contains
Successive alternate searches for 'NetSurf' and 'browser' each add
an item to the find-text menu. This may be logically correct, in that
those searches were carried out in that order, but I would suggest
that duplicate copies of the search strings need to be suppressed.
