When type ahead find is set to match at beginning, it actually matches everywhere.

Could it be you ticked this: Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead Find | Redirect typing to Live Filter Box ? Then it is not type ahead find anymore.

No.

The problem occurs after pressing the keyboard shortcut for "Next Type Ahead Match". At that point, other kinds of files are erroneously matched.

Can confirm. #1075 & #1076 both work incorrectly.
(also, topic split because the earlier one was talking about the live filter.)

20160617 it was forced to "match anywhere" in analogy to "Paste and Find" 2 years earlier:

Code: Select all

v13.70.0161 - 2014-02-22 09:41
   ...
    * Paste and Find: Now it ignores the match setting of Type Ahead Find. 
      Paste and Find always uses "Match anywhere".
Unfortunately (and unusually) I did not make any notes about why. :|

I admit the current behavior if Next/Previous Type Ahead Match is surprising. I will change it.
