Further to the above response - I think typeahead search was removed
from Files in Ubuntu at some point, so I can't even try to reproduce
this bug in 17.10, though maybe someone can test for it in 16.04?

Title:
  Typeahead functionality involving mouse scroll is broken

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete

Bug description:
  Description:  Ubuntu 11.10
  Release:      11.10

  nautilus:
    Installed: 1:3.2.1-0ubuntu3.1
    Candidate: 1:3.2.1-0ubuntu3.1

  Expected behaviour:
  - Open the directory that contains files with names starting with a similar 
character/string in nautilus. Example: abc, file1, file2, file3, xyz.
  - To select “file3” using typeahead you can either type explicit, unequivocal 
string (“file3” in this case, as the digit distinguishes file in this 
directory) or type common part and USE SCROLL TO NAVIGATE THROUGH THE RESULTS 
(in this case, e.g. “f”, which makes you able to scroll from “file1” to 
“file3”; “abc” and “xyz” are excluded as they don’t match) -- each scroll down 
selects next available item, each scroll up selects every previous item; I do 
not know how to say it more clearly.

  Actual behaviour:
  - Open the directory that contains files with names starting with a similar 
character/string in nautilus. Example: abc, file1, file2, file3, xyz.
  - Type in “f”.
  - Scrolling through the results doesn’t work UNLESS you place mouse pointer 
over the typeahead box. This is not very useful as this box is small and 
located in a corner.

  I remember the abovementioned expected behaviour to be an actual
  behaviour of 9.10 and classic GNOME, from which I turned to oneiric
  few weeks ago.
