How can we improve Yahoo Finance's Search?

Every time I type in a ticker and hit enter it only registers the first couple of letters so the wrong stock gets pulled up.

I wish it would just recognize the symbol I typed in and not give me the wrong stock every time. I'm better off waiting for predictive search to populate and clicking on the right ticker then.

    The results depend on what is highlighted in the dropdown list, not what is typed. If you type quickly and press Enter, the dropdown list will not "keep up", and will return whatever was highlighted at the time you pressed Enter. For example, if you quickly type PRSCX, you may get the result for PRSC. This is a very annoying bug. Results should reflect what is typed, not what is displayed in the dropdown.
