When you do a ctrl + f find in Sheets it now is pre-populated with the last thing that was searched. Problem is that the value is not highlighted and the cursor is before the text.
Result is that if you do a ctrl + f and want to quickly search for something other than what you previously searched for, you need to then do a ctrl + a and a delete to clear what was previously there creating two additional steps to get a quick task done. It's also a change from previous behavior and therefore users are not expecting it, causing confusion and irritation along the way.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Ctrl + f
3. Search for "test"
4. Close search (esc)
5. Ctrl + f
You'll see "test" is still in the find box and the cursor is before the first "t", if you start typing "for instance if you want to search for Frank, you'll now have "Franktest".
As before, the find dialog should be by default empty, or, if the idea is to have it pre-populated, it should be highlighted so that if you type something else, the previous text goes away without having to highlight and delete it with two additional steps.

@Xisco - another regression found. Someone may claim that it's a purposeful change....if so, I recommend the change I detailed in my original report to make it more functional as I think users who expect a quick and seamless find experience are going to get quite annoyed with this one.
