This has been my most miserable annoyance on Y. finance ever since this live look up feature was updated. I know most of my tickers and rarely need help. I understand there are less experienced people who might need look up assistance. The problem is it doesn't allow me to request whatever I enter verbatim. There is no opt out of look up assistance and the feature itself is very slow and somewhat buggy (the first entry doesn't always correctly match my ticker even after search settles down) so it changes my correctly entered ticker for wrong ones that suit the system, not me as the user.
I'm mostly using Chrome on Windows and the lookup almost never finds my correct ticker quickly enough before I can hit Enter, usually leading to a wrong company page if I don't wait for it to settle. It is marginally quicker in Firefox but not by much.
Please make it accept whatever I type in the search field and process my input immediately as I hit return, so any additional search required is carried out after that, not before.
