Google search results used to have a link that allowed you to open them at the correct place on the page for the text quoted in the result.

EG You searched for "blue beach shoes" and a result that headlined as "Shoe Factory" has text under saying "..and our new blue beach shoes are awesome" - you could make it open the result where that line of text was on the page.

Now that function seems to have vanished (or been hidden) and you merely end up at the top of the page and have to spend ages reading the whole page to find the relevant part - which may in fact not be there or may be so far down something like a Facebook page that you grow old and die before getting there.

Is there a way to regain the 'lost' functionality?

(Hope you all understand what I am talking about - it's not easy to put in writing!)

My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government
