Hello, I frequently use Wireshark to examine security alerts at my job and wanted to make a request for the developers to create a "find previous" button when using the Follow (TCP,UDP,SSL) Stream feature. It's nice to go through and search for certain key words, but as an example, I will look for Javascript and search for .js and see one match in the client's GET request, and then click next and jump way down into the server response and not be able to quickly go back to the last match. This would be a huge help to the many folks out there which use the Find feature. Thank you.

Probably best filed as an enhancement request on the Wireshark Bugzilla, so it can be tracked.
