The old behaviour was one of the power features of Nautilus for a person
that uses keyboard navigation. The new behaviour is dramatically
different and frankly doesn't work as well for many use cases.

Lets say I want to quickly navigate to
~/code/myproject/module/__init__.py.

1. I switch to Nautilus which shows my home folder
   A. With the old behaviour: c ENTER m ENTER m ENTER __i ENTER
   B. With the new behaviour: __init__.py, and it shows me tons of __init__.py 
located in my home folder and all subdirectories
2. Trying to use the new behaviour and still achieve my goal I try this:
   i) module/__init__.py, no hit
   ii) module __init__.py, no hit

So, currently I see no way of navigating to the intended file without
alot of hassle or reaching for the mouse. A big regression for me.

Title:
  restore type-ahead find

Status in Nautilus:
  Expired
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ubuntu-settings package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  GNOME removed type-ahead find in Nautilus 3.6, not without
  controversy:

  https://mail.gnome.org/archives/nautilus-
  list/2012-August/msg00002.html

  Now when you type in a Nautilus window, Nautilus immediately performs
  a search in the current directory and all its subdirectories.  I
  personally find this annoying.  If I want to search, I'll click the
  search icon.  Often I'm looking at a long directory listing and simply
  want to jump to a certain point in it, and type-ahead find works great
  for that.

  Would Ubuntu consider patching type-ahead find back in?
