When I search for a string, and the string appears in a 40-page-long thread, it sends me to page 1 of the thread. I have to page through each page and search each page with my browser in order to find the string. Is there an easier way to to this?

Yes, do an advanced search and have the results display by post instead of by thread.

you can also use the 'search this thread' option

or.... when you click the pop-down search link, you can click the "show posts" radio button instead of "search threads" ;)
