F5 refreshes the folder currently selected in tree. To refresh find results press F3.

In my system this is not so. Now I see, that this is not a problem of search result panel, but the general one. No matter which folder or drive is current (or was cuurent before searching), after pressing F5 the current folder always changes to H:\! :shock: . I have no any ideas :((( Have you?

That's crazy! The current folder is also displayed in the title bar of the window. Is that H:\, too??

No, in title bar I see the same folder's name as in the tree panel.
This is, in the tree panel the current folder is C:\ABC, in the title bar the same, and in files panel I see the content of it. OK. Now I press F5, and what is the result? The situation in the tree panel and in the title bar has not changed, but in the file panel I see now the content of another folder, this H:\!, is it would be the content of C:\ABC.
Total mystery, isn't it?!

Do you have a drive H:\?
If yes, anything special about that drive?
Did you try to close and restart the app?

Resrarted the app now. The problem's gone away!! :D
P.S.
But mistery however was indeed. (By the way, I have H: drive, it is a very usual virtual volume, and folder H:\! does exist too.)
